Monty Python's The Meaning of Life is an album released by Monty Python in 1983, in conjunction with the film Monty Python's The Meaning of Life. The album mainly consists of sketches from the film, with a few links performed by Michael Palin. A CD version was later released.

There are few pieces of dialogue that didn't make it into the final cut of the film included on this album. These include the brief introduction to "The Adventures of Martin Luther". The waiter's line at the end of "The Dungeon Restaurant" ("Well, it's uh... kind of a link.") is also not in the film.
