I bought So Anyway by John Cleese on a whim It was an Audible deal of the day Why not I like John Cleese's work I like Monty Python I like comedy It was a bargain priceIt was much better than I was expecting An absolute delight John focuses on his early life through to the first Monty Python programmes with a final chapter on the Monty Python reunion shows at the O2 Arena in 2014 Reading about these shows sent me off to YouTube to watch some of the show and I recommend you do the same A life reaffirming bunch of clips it's harder to imagine I always appreciate listening to autobiographies read by their authors John's narration is wonderful What's most endearing and enjoyable is hearing him laugh during anecdotes he relates having been reminded of the humour whilst telling the taleThere's loads to love in 'So Anyway' This is from the blurb which saves me having to write it all out myself 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 PythonIf you like the sound of that little lot then rest assured you'll thoroughly enjoy this book Weaved into the memories are other musings too It's blimming marvellous I hope he'll write a follow up as there's lots of his life still to explore 45

„And now for something completely different“„Am August bombardierten deutsche Flugzeuge meinen Heimatort Weston super Mare Die meisten Einwohner waren überzeugt es müsse sich dabei um einen Irrtum handeln Schließlich waren die Deutschen ein für seine Effizienz berühmtes Volk warum also sollten sie absolut einwandfreie Bomben auf Weston werfen wo es nichts gab was annähernd so wertvoll war wie eine deutsche Bombe. Update Rant Because apparently I have to state the obviousThis review is simply my personal opinion of this book everyone else is entitled to their own opinion Just as I do not begrudge readers who enjoy books I hate andor hate books I love I would appreciate if others would do the same My rating of this book has nothing to do with John Cleese as a person or his previous or current works This rating is based on my OWN OPINION of this single book Being attacked for an unbiased review is disgusting Let go of the hate peopleFREE ADVICE “Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die” ― Gautama BuddhaLuckily for trolls I just auto delete all rude ramblings You're Welcome End RantReviewWell that was uite possibly the most tedious autobiography that I have ever had the misfortune of reading I enjoyed the first 20% but after that it uickly went downhill The pointless rambles constant copypasted sketches and petty judgements of former colleagues did little to keep me interested This doesn't feel so much of an autobiography as a boring and pointless collection of forgetful paragraphs 255Buy Borrow or Bin verdict BINNote I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review

So Anyway The Autobiography“ So beginnt John Cleese seine Autobiografie Wo war ich noch So Anyway PDF malCleese war früh klar dass aus ihm einmal ein ganz Großer werden würde – schließlich maß er mit zwölf Jahren bereits über Meter Nach ersten traumatischen Bühnenerfahrungen im Schultheater feierte er bald erste Erfolge im Londoner West End seiner Begegnung mit Graham Chapman verdankt die Welt das Phänomen Monty Python Seine Figuren meis. I expected a book about Monty Python member John Cleese to be a wacky non linear story of life sketches linked together by loony intervals “That’s a link” Instead it was wonderful remembrances starting with his childhood and ending at Monty Python Of note if you are a Python fan you only get the last two chapters about the actual writing and performing of the show and the 2014 Reunion shows However along the way you learn the genesis of classics like the cheese shop and dead parrot sketches and how he met the other Python members His brilliant follow up series Fawlty Towers is mentioned to a lesser degree unfortunatelyFirst and foremost John Cleese is a writer Originally he went to Cambridge to be a lawyer joining Footlights at the school to write and perform where he met medical student Graham Chapman This led to writing gigs for the BBC where he wrote for David Frost and worked with the likes of Marty Feldman and the two Ronnies Interestingly when David Frost gave Graham and John a show of their own they insisted Marty Feldman appear in front of the camera as well as write David Frost felt him too funny looking At first they had to work with Marty patiently on his lines until he got comfortable in front of the camera A star was born John also wrote for and worked with the world’s leading comedy actor at the time Peter SellersSo anywayJohn Cleese is witty intelligent and self deprecating making his book a wonderful read As an added bonus if you leave the book right side up on your nightstand his eyes will follow you around the room
