Always Look on the Bright Side of Life

Now I challenge you to say that title without singing it! Called a ‘sortabiography’ this was a much enjoyed recent read by Rob and here’s his review: “Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life is the title to a memoir of unparalleled wit and candour from one of the most talented British writers and comedians to have emerged from the early sixties. Eric Idle refl ects on the meaning of his own life in this entertaining and remarkable journey from his childhood in an austere boarding school through to his successful career in comedy, television, theatre and fi lm. In the sixties and seventies, Eric stumbled into 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 dear lifelong friends. With anecdotes sprinkled throughout involving other close friends and luminaries such as Mike Nichols, Mick Jagger, Paul Simon, Lorne Michaels, and many more as well as John Cleese and the Python team, this will be a delight for the legion of Monty Python fans and one which truly celebrates the Python legend. Always Look on The Bright Side Of Life is a signature tune that has achieved a cult status and has since become the number one song played at funerals in the UK!. You just couldn’t make this stuff up, it would be too ridiculous to be true!”

Always Look on the Bright Side of Life

Always look on the Bright Side of Life is the title to a memoir of unparalled wit and candour from one of the most talented British writers and comedians to have emerged from the early sixties. Eric Idle reflects on the meaning of his own life in this entertaining and remarkable journey from his childhood in an austere boarding school through his successful career in comedy, television, theater, and film. In 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 dear lifelong friends. With anecdotes sprinkled throughout involving other close friends and luminaries such as Mike Nichols, Mick Jagger, Steve Martin, Paul Simon, Lorne Michaels, and many more, as well as John Cleese and the Python team, this will be a delight for the legion of Monty Python fans and one which truly celebrates the Python legend. Always look on the Bright Side of Life is a signature tune that has achieved a cult status and has since become the number one song played at funerals in the UK. You just couldn't make this stuff up, it would sound too ridiculous to be true!
