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

SUMMARY ´ So Anyway The Autobiography John Cleese Ë 0 SUMMARY FREE DOWNLOAD So Anyway The Autobiography Ter Sellers David Frost Marty Feldman and others to the heights of Monty PythonPunctuated 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 ueens of England this is a masterly performance by a former schoolmast. Avant PythonCleese s autobiography is charming and pithy with a few jabs here and there He really does start at the beginning and wends his way through to the advent of Monty Python He gives his view of events and interactions that helped mould his writing and humor from blurry half formed early memories parental forces school days antics university wing stretching to kissed by lady luck career start Blessings Cleese is generous in his praise and his long lived writing partnership with Graham Chapman is touching Even the times when they re stupid with each other Once Maybe twice Overall a good feel for the craft and business of comedy I suppose the thing I enjoyed immensely about reading this was that it helped tie in some loose strands of knowledge My brain tends to be a bit of a magpie and collect facts often unconnected and just ties them on like a bright string on a empty branch they don t have a reference but they re stored Then I come across something else that will match up with this odd fact and like a jigsaw puzzle gets sewn into the existing structure of knowledge So while reading this I m going hmmm David Frost funny name not sure why Nixon is popping into my head I actually wrote it off as the antics of Stone s arraignment during the week that tweaked it but figured it was unrelated Of course had I actually watched FrostNixon I probably would have gotten there uicker but 40 pages on there I was Later I was making my husband look at a picture and tell me if Marty Feldman was Igor in Wilder s Young Frankenstein Huh Then there was a whole Graham St Bartholomew s Sherlock swerve and I just laughed because by this time I was getting distracted from reading as my mind went off on tangents So anyway yeah this was a funny Droll understated at times indignant very occasionally and a window on what made Cleese who he is Was Will be Buddy read with Ran thanks and sorry I slacked off

This book was like a sandwich made from really good bread but nothing else It was highly entertaining but absolutely incomplete It was a fascinating and amusing insight into John Cleese s childhood and early career but then simply and abruptly stops short He gives detailed accounts of every production that he ever did prior to the Pythons including transcripts of many sketches but once he arrives at his Python years he stops so suddenly that you begin to search the cover for something about this being Volume One Surely he can t go into such detail about how he met this actor how he got this job what he thought about this person etc and then just say Then we started filming the Pythons the end He describes his relationship with Graham but barely mentions any of the others I understand that this was only a portion of his career but I would think it was as significant at least as his early work In addition he describes his early relationship and marriage to Connie but again just uits He never discusses their breakup nor any of his other marriages While it was an interesting peek into the beginnings of his life and career it felt a bit like running off of a cliff You are going along enjoying yourself and having the feeling that this is all leading to a certain point but just as you arrive at that point blam it s over
