Despite having apparently no talent for singing or dancing, John Cleese joined the Footlights club when he took up his place at Cambridge in 1960. Among his contemporaries were Bill Oddie, Tim Brooke-Taylor, and Graham Chapman with whom he would go on to form Monty Python. This autobiography describes the comedian's life and influences from his childhood and time as a teacher at his old prep school to his success as a scriptwriter, comedian and ultimately film star.

Review:

"Vivid, ridiculously entertaining, and, at times, explosively funny... Cleese is a master of crisp comic prose: his elegant syntax and sudden absurdities would have PG Wodehouse raising a martini glass. So, Anyway... glows with fairness, kindness, gentleness and loyalty." (Nicholas Barber Sunday Express)

"Told with considerable charm and a refreshing amount of candour, the story is one of a vulnerable soul gradually finding a degree of security from behind a carapace of cutting wit... Remarkably warm and generous." (Graham McCann Times Literary Supplement)

"John Cleese’s memoir is just about everything one would expect of its author – smart, thoughtful, provocative and above all funny... A picture, if you will, of the artist as a young man." (Washington Post)

"So, Anyway... breaks away from the shallow conventions of the famous person's autobiography... The result is a book that is frequently hilarious, occasionally lyrical and always thoughtful. It is a fine and funny achievement." (Herald)

"Like having a long lunch with an amiable, slightly loony uncle. Who also happens to be John Cleese." (Michael Ian Black New York Times)

"Left me wiping away tears." (Helen Brown Sunday Telegraph)

Book Description:
