One of the great publications of the 20th century, performing a vital public service. There's nothing worse than people who go around misquoting the dead parrot or Spanish Inquisition sketches, not to mention the penguin on the telly.

Now these people have NO EXCUSE!

The scripts from the tv series. You'll enjoy if you're a fan, probably won't if you're not

Recommends it for: Python fans
All of the sketches from Monty Python's Flying Circus. Includes some screen captures from the shows. Absolutely hilarious stuff, and helpful sometimes if you can't quite figure out what people are saying. My copy is battered, dog-eared and much loved. A classic.

This is an essential companion to watching the show if you're really into it. Sometimes the comedy goes by so fast that a joke can blow by without being processed by the brain, but this book helps you capture every word with complete scripts.

I haven't exactly read all of this, but I've seen the television product of these scripts, which is ALMOST the same, right? ;)
Read, re-read and memorised.
