Over thirty years ago, a group of five Englishmen and one wayward American re-wrote the rules of comedy. Monty Python's Flying Circus, an unheralded collection of sketches, hilarities, inanities and animations first appeared on the BBC late one night in 1969. Its impact on the world has been felt ever since.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Love the Pythons. Hate the audio. Terrible sound. Could hardly understand anything that was being said.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Couldn't hear.

Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Clean up the audio and you might have some good material.
