1 Review
The world of Monty Python, its ear finely tuned to the absurd, was that rare beast: absolute originality. This tribute to the inspired collective genius of John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, and the late Graham Chapman, is based on personal reminiscences and exclusive interviews with each of them. It recounts, with many photos and illustrations from the archives, their pre-Python lives, their meeting, its impact, and its aftermath. A faithful and entertaining chronicle of the people and events who engendered a revolution in comedy. George Perry is an author, journalist, fellow Oxbridge graduate, and expert on all matters Python.
