Monty Python’s Flying Circus: Complete And Annotated…All The Bits

Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones

The must-have book for every Monty Python fan is now in paperback! Monty Python’s Flying Circus includes every script from every episode of the innovative, hilarious, and absurd series–one of the most influential of all time–plus hundreds of annotations, behind-the-scenes stories, profiles, and more, as well as photographs, drawings, and Terry Gilliam’s iconic artwork.

Monty Python’s Flying Circus 
 is one of the most popular, important and oft-quoted comedy series of all time. This landmark work collects the complete scripts for every one of the 45 episodes of Flying Circus: every silly setup, every clever conceit, every snide insult, and ever saucy aside from these classic skits, including The Ministry of Silly Walks, The Dead Parrot, Banter in the Cheese Shop, Spam, the Funniest Joke in the World, The Spanish Inquisition, The Argument Clinic, The Fish-Slapping Dance, The Lumberjack Song, and all the rest.

Every script is thoroughly annotated with notes that cover the plethora of cultural, historical, and topical references touched upon in each sketch. Sidebars and commentary throughout include profiles of the principles – Graham Chapman, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin, Terry Gilliam, and John Cleese – and interviews with the cast and crew; fascinating facts about technical concerns, set design, and shooting locations; insider stores from on and off the set, including arguments, accidents, and practical jokes; goofs and gaffes; and much more. Also included are thousands of stills and artwork from the shows.
