Join Brookline Booksmith and The Wilbur for an evening of hilarious conversation with Eric Idle, one of the six original members of Monty Pythons Flying Circus, to celebrate the release of his new memoir, Always Look on the Bright Side of Life.

Tickets include a pre-signed copy of the book.

More about the Book:
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

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 a remarkable 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 and which 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.

About the Author:
Eric Idle is an English comedian actor, author, and singer-songwriter who found immediate fame with the sketch comedy show Monty Python’s Flying Circus. Following its success, they began making films, which include Holy Grail (1975), Life of Brian (1979) and The Meaning of Life (1983). Idle also authored the smash Broadway musical Spamalot, which won three Tonys, including Best Musical. He lives in Los Angeles.
