Monty Python-Flying Circus Complete Collection - This item has Sold Out!
|WARNING: TOXIC JOCULARITY ENCLOSED. Inside this decorative carton lurk four seasons of Monty Python's Flying Circus, two new-to-DVD documentaries, two Monty Python Live performances, and six Personal Best compilations. The whole great mess--Spam tins, parrot carcasses, blancmanges, and all--has been safely digitized, compressed into microscopic "funny bits," pressed onto 21 shiny discs, and sealed within this whimsy-proof receptacle.|
SO DON'T OPEN IT! All right, if you must. But beware: there's new material you can't repeat verbatim (yet). Before the Flying Circus employs rare vintage footage to explore the influences that shaped six young lunatics into the world's most innovative comedy troupe, while Monty Python Conquers America documents their tremendous, yet astonishingly unlikely, American success. The six Personal Best collections present the best sketches and songs, as selected, arranged, and hosted by the individual Pythons themselves. And, of course, Monty Python Live shows what happens when absurd TV sketches are inflicted on live audiences. Now stop reading and put a disc in your DVD machine. This bloody box of buffoonery can't watch itself.
