    This audiobook, unlike any other about the team or series, was created with full access to Graham Chapman's private papers, scripts, and letters, thus allowing the author to explore some age-old myths, clear up some age-old debates, and give a rare insight into the making of a team and a series. This audiobook gives the reader knowledge about previously unknown information and trivia - much of which didn't appear in even Python's own book of the troupe - as well as the ability to hear actual unseen letters sent to the team by the BBC, and others.

    Wilt Fusarium, a clueless American ad executive, unwittingly finds himself in the middle of political intrigue and revolution on the tiny island of Costa San Rica, while trying to save the ad agency's Choad Banana account. Complications and misunderstandings abound, as the island's despot leader thinks Wilt is a revolutionary, the revolutionaries think he's a government agent, the banana company thinks he's CIA, and the CIA, well, they don't know what to think.

    The slightly ridiculous tragicomic odyssey of Joe Perk, a young Jewish man who doesn't know it; a man alone: inarticulate, simple-hearted and naive. Joe is "a coffee-whisperer" whose amazing talent for pulling the perfect cup of java propels him from small town Oklahoma to New York City to realize his dream: to become a world champion coffee barista.

    Set in 1919, The Greatest Living Englishman tells the comedic adventures of "England's Worst Poet" Colin Gilfeather Millaney: an egotistical - though loveable - rhymer who is wholly untouched with even the faintest speck of talent. He is so awful that people throw rotten produce at him on the streets. They buy his books, just to throw at him. But that does not stop him from penning his doggerel, or inflicting it upon what he claims is the "misguided" public.

    When a gold coin heist turns out badly, a pair of idiotic crooks hook-up with some moronic thieves (and a movie star) in order to steal the secret KFC chicken recipe. Along the way they reveal (among many other things) the connection between Gilligan's Island and the devil, what Salman Rushdie and Elvis have in common with Col. Sanders, why Betty was never a vitamin, and what Bootsy Collins does in his spare time. It also deals with the whole "why did the chicken cross the road" conundrum.

    Customer service manager Bob Thomassoulo gets more than he bargained for when he decides to go to Mexico and take revenge on the man who took his job. Accompanying him to Tijuana are his two best friends, Bacho and Doyle, who become entangled in a separate tale about digging for gold. This is an absurd tale of revenge, gold lust, friendship, darts, love, and political revolution. Oh, it's also about what makes a rock classic a classic.
