Monty Python's Flying Circus: Hidden Treasures is the complete, authorised history of Monty Python, with bits in. Never before has the story of the Pythons been so brilliantly told, in words, rare and unseen photographs and fascinating examples of removable and on-the-page facsimile memorabilia. The 'Dead Parrot' sketch. 'The Lumberjack Song'. 'Argument Clinic'. 'Spam'. Monty Python's Flying Circus was packed with famous skits and classic one-liners, many of which are still globally recognized from the Hollywood Bowl to the University of Woolloomooloo. Their irreverent humour is the yardstick by which others are judged and the adjective 'Pythonesque' has been part of the English language for years. This book delves into the official Monty Python archives for the first time and tells the Monty Python story through photographs, text and props in the shape of removable facsimile memorabilia, including hand-scribbled scripts, never-before-published cue sheets, postcards, programmes and more.
