And Now for Something Completely Different: Critical Approaches to Monty Python

Kate Egan (Editor), Jeffrey Andrew Weinstock (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review

Abstract

This book examines Monty Python’s enduring status as a comedy touchstone associated with anti-authoritarianism and the unconventional, fifty years after its inception, across generations and across the globe. The book brings together cutting-edge research from an international group of scholars from film, television and media studies in order to evaluate Python’s comedy output across time and media, tracing their meanings from a range of social, cultural and transnational perspectives. Consequently, this book explores Python’s influences, production contexts, the – frequently controversial - themes their comedy addressed, and the cult status and forms of fandom associated with Python in the present day.
