So anyway...

Cover: 'So anyway... '

Staff Review: "So anyway... " by John Cleese

★★★★★

Whether you know him as a Python or as The Pink Panther's Charles Dreyfus, chances are that at some point in your life, John Cleese has made you laugh. Easily one of my favorite comedic actors, John Cleese's memoir is a book that was worth the wait. From his quiet beginnings as the only child of older parents in a sleepy English town, to his adventures in school, and work as a teacher, we get a great view of the man who would become a star. When Cleese attended Cambridge University, he discovered that he had a penchant for comedy. There he also met some extremely talented individuals whom he would work closely with in his professional career and launched what would become the beginnings of the sensational Monty Python. As a fan, I enjoyed reading about Cleese's life and his somewhat reluctant existence in the spotlight. I now have a whole new appreciation for the man that has brought so much laughter into my living room!
