"so, anyway" Lunch Author Series with John Cleese

Cleese will discuss his new book "so, anyway"

John Cleese’s towering comedic influence has stretched across generations; his sharp satirical eye and the unique brand of physical comedy he perfected with Monty Python, on Fawlty Towers, and beyond now seem written into comedy’s DNA. In this rollicking memoir, Cleese takes readers on a Grand Tour of his ascent in the entertainment world. Twisting and turning through amazing stories and hilarious digressions—this story of a young man’s journey to the pinnacle of comedy is a masterly performance by a master performer.
