Audible Deal of the Day - John Cleese Autobiography 99p

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.

Great book. Just finished listening. You get a lot more from the audio version than you do from on paper with this one as he does lots of sketches and plays old sketches in it

You do not need to subscribe or pay for anything other than the download
Got this a couple of months ago as my monthly choice. Its excellent. John Cleese laughing at his own book is very funny and you do get much more from this than what was in the written book. Michael Palin as well!
Bought ...Thanks op.
