This book delves into the official archives and recounts the history of the men who changed the face of comedy. The story is told through photographs, text, props and memorabilia, including hand-scribbled scripts, never-before-published cue sheets, artwork, unused presentation material, and more, offering the reader a unique peek into the world of these comic geniuses. The 'Dead Parrot' sketch. 'The Lumberjack Song'. 'Argument Clinic'. 'Spam'. Monty Python's Flying Circus was packed with famous skits and classic one-liners, many of which are still globally recognized, from the Hollywood Bowl to the University of Woolloomooloo. Their irreverent humour is the yardstick by which others are judged and the adjective 'Pythonesque' has been part of the English language for years. And 50 years after first broadcast, Monty Python's Flying Circus is still attracting and amusing audiences around the world. Contains a Foreword by the Pythons - including Graham Chapman from beyond the grave - and God.

A few miles from New Orleans, at LaSalle's Landing - in what is now the city of Kenner - stands a life-size bronze statue of two men in combat. One of them is the legendary Gypsy Jem Mace, the first Heavyweight Boxing Champion of the World and the last of the great bare-knuckle fighters. This is the story of Jem Mace's life. Born in Norfolk in 1931, between his first recorded fight, in October 1855, and his last - at the age of nearly 60 - he became the greatest fighter the world has ever known. But "Gypsy" Jem Mace was far more than a champion boxer: he played the fiddle in street processions in war-wrecked New Orleans; was friends with Wyatt Earp - survivor of the gunfight at the OK Corral (who refereed one of his fights), the author Charles Dickens; controversial actress Adah Mencken (he and Dickens were rivals for her affection); and the great and the good of New York and London high society; he fathered numerous children (the author is his great-great-grandson), and had countless lovers, resulting in many marriages and divorces.Gypsy Jem Mace is not simply a book about boxing, but more a narrative quest to uncover the life of a famous but forgotten ancestor, who died in poverty in 1910. This is a story that deserves to be told, one that will resonate with anyone, young or old, man or woman, who has ever sought to do something special before the light of life starts to dim.

A comprehensive guide to the K-pop girl group who are taking the music world by storm. The sassiest, most stylish girls around - BLACKPINK!

'Blackpink in Your Area!' The K-pop girl group are taking their catchphrase literally; they have just finished a sell-out stadium world tour. Jisoo, Jennie, Ros� and Lisa, all beautiful and supremely talented women in their early 20s, are the hottest thing in pop right now - and they only have a dozen songs!

If Blackpink were ever a secret, the secret was out by April 2019, when they headlined Coachella, and their fandom - known as Blinks - suddenly included Ariana Grande and Harry Styles. They are the first female K-pop group to have had four #1 singles on Billboard's World Digital chart, and their single 'Ddu-Du Ddu-Du' became the most viewed music video by a K-pop group on YouTube - take that, BTS!

This book is the perfect unofficial guide to Blackpink. It relates their days as trainees, their debut, their hits and success in the US, examines the personalities of each of the members and details their choreography, fashion and style triumphs and reveals why they are 'the only gang to run the game in high heels'.
