Watch the video of John Cleese sharing anecdotes about Monty Python Live and reminiscing about some of his live performances.
To celebrate the 9th October publication of his highly anticipated memoir, "So, Anyway…", John Cleese sat down with comedian Eddie Izzard to talk about his influences, Monty Python Live and a rather unforgettable early performance.
"So, Anyway…" is a must read for comedy fans worldwide. For the first time, John Cleese tells 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 performance at St Peter’s Preparatory School at the age of eight and five-sixths; his first experiences in the world of work as a teacher who knew nothing about the subjects he was expected to teach; and his first encounter with his writing partner for over two decades, Graham Chapman.
