FORMAT Paperback LANGUAGE English CONDITION Brand New Publisher Description We know him best for his unforgettable roles on Monty Python - from the Flying Circus to The Meaning of Life. Now, Eric Idle reflects on the meaning of his own life in this entertaining memoir that takes us on a remarkable journey from his childhood in an austere boarding school through his successful career in comedy, television, theatre and film. Coming of age as a writer and comedian during the Sixties and Seventies, Eric stumbled into the crossroads of the cultural revolution and found himself rubbing shoulders with the likes of George Harrison, David Bowie and Robin Williams, all of whom became lifelong friends. With anecdotes sprinkled throughout involving Mike Nichols, Mick Jagger, Steve Martin, Paul Simon and many more, as well as the Pythons themselves, Eric captures a time of tremendous creative output with equal parts hilarity and heart.In Always Look on the Bright Side of Life, named after the song he wrote for Life of Brian which has since become the number-one song played at funerals in the UK, he shares the highlights of his life and career with the kind of offbeat humour that has delighted his audiences for five decades. This is a memoir chock-full of behind-the-scenes stories from a high-flying life featuring everyone from Princess Leia to Queen Elizabeth. Author Biography Eric Idle is a comedian, actor, author and singer-songwriter who found immediate fame on television with the sketch-comedy show Monty Pythons Flying Circus. Following its success, the Pythons began making films that include Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975), Monty Pythons Life of Brian (1979) and The Meaning of Life (1983). Eric also wrote the award-winning musical Spamalot. He lives in Los Angeles. Review Inevitably, Eric Idles memoir, Always Look on the Bright Side of Life, is no ordinary celebrity autobiography ... [Showbiz anecdotes] are combined with frank, fresh insights into five decades as part of Monty Python -- Hannah Shaddock * Radio Times * Idle is engaging company -- Roland White * Sunday Times * I read Always Look on the Bright Side of Life from cover to cover. My next mission is to read whats between the covers. Its a joy to read Eric Idles fully transparent personal stories of what got him to the present from birth. Any Monty Python lover or lover of honesty and the crafting of a hilarious comedian and musical genius will love this book. And love Eric as I do. Not to spoil-alert, but his stating that "Laughter is the best revenge" sums it up. Read every word of this book or I will hunt you down and read it to you. And you dont want me in your house -- Bob Saget If I could go back in time and observe any comedians journey, I think it would be a terrible waste of time travel. That said, Id want to see just how Eric idle and a few friends changed comedy forever. This is the book thatve been waiting for most of my life -- Conan OBrien On the last day, when the last human beings look out at the blackened cinders of their world, I can only hope that one of them will sing, "Some things in life are bad, they can really make you mad," and "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life" will ring out as humanitys final words. I loved this biography of a song and the man who made it, and the picture he paints of his life, his friends, his passions, five Pythons and a Beatle -- Neil Gaiman As funny, wicked, naughty, eye-popping and compulsively, joyously brilliant as the genius who wrote it -- Stephen Fry Details ISBN1474610285 Author Eric Idle Publisher Orion Publishing Co Year 2018 ISBN-10 1474610285 ISBN-13 9781474610285 Format Paperback Publication Date 2018-10-02 Imprint Weidenfeld & Nicolson Subtitle A Sortabiography Place of Publication London Country of Publication United Kingdom Media Book Language English Pages 304 DEWEY 792.7028092 Dimensions152mm x 232mm x 28mm We've got this At The Nile, if you're looking for it, we've got it.
