Inhaltsangabe

Candid and brilliantly funny, this is the story of how a tall, shy youth from Weston-super-Mare went on to become a self-confessed legend.

En route, John Cleese describes his nerve-racking first public appearance, at St Peter's Preparatory School at the age of eight and five-sixths; his endlessly peripatetic homelife, with parents who seemed incapable of staying in any house for longer than six months; his first experiences in the world of work, as a teacher who knew nothing about the subjects he was expected to teach; his hamster-owning days at Cambridge; and his first encounter with the man who would be his writing partner for over two decades, Graham Chapman. And so on to his dizzying ascent via scriptwriting for Peter Sellers, David Frost, Marty Feldman and others to the heights of Monty Python.

Punctuated from time to time with John Cleese's thoughts on topics as diverse as the nature of comedy, the relative merits of cricket and waterskiing and the importance of knowing the dates of all the kings and queens of England, this is a masterly performance by a former schoolmaster.

Too short, come on John

The only Problem I have with this Autobiography is, that it´s too short. It Ends, when the Pythons begin. Looks like the life of John Cleese ended then and was only shortly resurrected in the o2 Arena a couple of years ago. But the guy probably knows that we will just wait for the Part II and buy this again, in the end, he Needs Money for his Mistresses probably. For everybody who wants to have a good time listening to a great Autobiography, this is for you. I admit that I speak here as a fanboy, but for everybody else: if you ever wondered, why John Cleese has this Special look in his eyes, this desperate, sad, empty look - you will find an answer in this book, too.

Well done Mr. Cleese

Funny and informative, you can't stop listening!!!
Maybe there had been a few more facts about the monthy pytons flying circus.
