Image of John Cleese

Founding member of Monty Python and co-creator of Fawlty Towers, John Cleese is a British comedy legend. He will be coming here to sign copies of  So, Anyway, his brilliantly funny and candid account of his life. Cleese tells his story of how he became a comedy giant – from a shy boy in Weston-super-Mare, his hamster-owning days at Cambridge, his first meeting with Graham Chapman – who became his writing-partner for over two decades, and reaching the dizzying heights of fame with Monty Python.

We are delighted to announce that our event with John Cleese will now be a talk and Q&A rather than the previously listed signing. He has broken free from the constraints of the signing queue, deciding he would much rather be able to talk to and engage with the lovely people of Bath!
