The ultimate guide for Python fans is back, newly revised for the nineties. The years since the publication of the first edition have brought a great deal of change for the Python alumni-most notably most celebrated postgraduate successes: A Fish Called Wanda, The Fisher King, 12 Monkeys, and Disney's Mr. Toad's Wild Ride.
This revised edition also contains all of the original material (dead parrots, fish-slapping, silly walks, Knights Who Say Ni, etc.) that made the first edition such a success! The First 280 Years of Monty Python celebrates the group's career with exclusive interviews, rare photographs, and an episode guide detailing the original TV shows. It's a must-have item for any Python fan.

About the Author
Kin Howard Johnson ran away to join the circus in 1974 as a fan, friend, and stalker (not in that order). He lived on location with Monty Python in Tunisia during the filming of Life of Brian, where he won the hearts of the zany Brits after serving as a double for the taller Pythons, then followed it up with an award-winning portrayal of the"Pantomime Goose" in Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl. He is the author of three previous books on Monty Python, The first 200 Years of Monty Python, And Now for Something Completely Trivial, and Life (Before And) After Monty Python, as well as Truth in Comedy, an improvisational manual cowritten with Del Close and Charna Halpern. He lives outside Chicago with wife Laurie Bradach and son Morgon.
