Always Look on the Bright Side of Life: A Sortabiography by Eric IdleFrom the ingenious comic performer, founding member of Monty Python, and creator of Spamalot, comes an absurdly funny memoir of unparalleled wit and heartfelt candor
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 an unforgettable journey from his childhood in an austere boarding school through his successful career in comedy, television, theater, 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 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 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 for the song he wrote for Life of Brian (the film which he originally gave the irreverent title Jesus Christ: Lust for Glory) and that 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 humor that has delighted audiences for five decades. The year 2019 marks the fiftieth anniversary of The Pythons, and Eric is marking the occasion with this hilarious memoir chock full of behind-the-scenes stories from a high-flying life featuring everyone from Princess Leia to Queen Elizabeth.

Looking back on the bright side of Monty Python's Life Of Brian at 40
From the ingenious comic performer, founding member of Monty Python, and creator of Spamalot comes an absurdly funny memoir of unparalleled wit and heartfelt candor. Eric Idle joyously recounts his existence in these pages. 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. This is the book I have been waiting for most of my life. I expected more out of Mr. 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.
I love that song, and I love the movie it comes from, 'The Life Of Brian', and actually all the Monty Python movies have great songs in them, and I don't know, maybe this is the start of something. I might have to learn some other one for the next tour, I don't know. It was so much fun doing that, being able to pull that song out and people would whistle along with the whistling parts as you can hear on the record actually. It was great. I wish I could write a song like that.

There aren't a whole lot of Easter movies. It would be odd if there was, really. For those who've never seen it, the film stars Graham Chapman as a man called Brian Cohen, who was once a teenager called Brian, and a boy called Brian, and so on. Born on Christmas Day in the manger next door to Jesus Christ, Brian is mistaken for the messiah from very early on, with characters played the other Pythons coming to either worship him or flagellate him throughout the film. As long as the film has been around, it's been called blasphemous, but it's not. By constantly distinguishing Brian from Christ and levelling all mockery at the various denominations that instantly spring up around him, it's more heretical.
