I love celebrity biographies and Monty Python. This book was pretty good on both fronts - most interesting was Eric Idle's experiences with many different celebrities over the years.

Eric Idle is a funny guy. HIs memoir does not disappoint; consistently candid and hilarious as he shares tales from his early years, the plethora of Python experiences, his enduring friendship with George Harrison and time spent with various other famous folk throughout his long and semi-illustrious career. Idle's joyfully irreverent wordplay and very English understatement, along with the naughty bits, made this an enjoyable read even during the sad parts.

Witty book. There is a steady stream of humor. I was born in 1962, and was a big fan of Monty Python. There are some parts early on where it gets bogged down with some early career details, but efforts to push through will be rewarded.

Very interesting and funny. EI is always a hoot.

People not familiar with English comics of the 60's might want to skip chapter 2. I almost didn't finish the book after reading that part, but I'm glad I eventually picked it up again.

Fabulous. Laugh out loud funny man writes a good tale of his life in comedy, the people he met and the ones he lost.

Always look on the bright side of life!!!!
