John Cleese: And Now for Something Completely Different

Robert Gore-Langton

A hugely entertaining biography of one of the founders of Monty Python’s Flying Circus, and the writer and star of the world’s 21st funniest film ever (according to the AFI), A Fish Called Wanda.

Tracing the development of one of the world’s unique comic talents from English middle class suburbia to the world’s screens and stages, this is the story of how John Cleese went from being a lanky Cambridge student to international sex symbol. Here is the story of how Cleese went from being the Python continuity announcer intoning arguably the Python’s greatest catchphrase, ‘and now for something completely different’ to perfecting the truly silliest walks seen in any ministry, or at any English seaside hotels.

This witty, engaging celebration of the many and different comic sides of John Cleese offers a personal overview of the career of one of the world’s most unlikely funniest performers and writer.
