JOHN CLEESE | So, anyway… The autobiography of John Cleese
Las memorias de uno de los mayores genios de la comedia de todos los tiempos
Twisting and turning through surprising stories and hilarious digressions—with some brief pauses along the way that comprise a fascinating primer on what’s funny and why—this story of a young man’s journey to the pinnacle of comedy is a masterly performance by a master performer.
So, Anyway . . . ambles along in loose fashion, taking its time, stopping to admire the view here and there, dispensing a little social commentary (“The very group that was most disliked and belittled at Cambridge in the early ’60s was running the country 30 years later. Or sort of running it”), and otherwise taking the scenic route through a mostly sunny landscape. The effect is a bit like having a long lunch with an amiable, slightly loony uncle. Who also happens to be John Cleese.
