WA – An Evening with John Cleese

cleese

John Cleese appears at the University Temple on Sunday November 16th at 7:00 PM! Tickets are $28 and available from Brown Paper Tickets. Each ticket admits up to two people and includes a signed copy of So, Anyway…

Press Release:

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, So, Anyway, Cleese takes readers on a Grand Tour of his ascent in the entertainment world, from his humble beginnings in a sleepy English town and his early comedic days at Cambridge University (with future Python partner Graham Chapman), to the founding of the landmark comedy troupe that would propel him to worldwide renown.

After getting his start as a writer and actor on the landmark David Frost-hosted The Frost Report, where he worked alongside many who would also later become comedy icons, Cleese landed his most famous role as a star of the TV show Monty Python’s Flying Circus. To the legions of Python fans and comedy aficionados, Cleese’s work with the Pythons has become the stuff of legend. His signature characters including the Minister of Silly Walks and the owner (and would-be returner) of a dead parrot embodied his knack for madcap buffoonery played completely straight and catapulted him to the shortlist of funniest men alive.

Twisting and turning through amazing stories and hilarious digressions with some brief pauses along the way that comprise a fascinating primer on what’s funny and why this story of a young man’s journey to the pinnacle of comedy is a masterly performance by a master performer.

Comic book authors Raina Telgemeier and Kazu Kibuishi appear at the Seattle Public Library’s Northeast Branch on Friday, September 26, 2014 from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. to talk about their new publications and sign books for their fans.

Accompanied by a visual presentation, the artists will talk about their books, demonstrate how they create graphic novels, and stage interactive readings with attendees.

“Sisters” by Raina Telgemeier: Raina can’t wait to be a big sister, but once Amara is born, things aren’t quite how she expected them to be. Their relationship doesn’t improve much over the years. But when a baby brother enters the picture, and later, when something doesn’t seem right between their parents, they realize they must figure out how to get along. They are sisters, after all.

“Amulet Book Six, Escape From Lucien” by Kazu Kibuishi: Navin and his classmates journey to Lucien, a city ravaged by war and plagued by mysterious creatures, where they search for a beacon essential to their fight against the Elf King. Meanwhile, Emily heads back into the Void with Max, one of the Elf King’s loyal followers, where she learns his darkest secrets. The stakes, for both Emily and Navin, are higher than ever.

Kazu Kibuishi is the Eisner-nominated creator of the #1 New York Times bestselling Amulet series of graphic novels as well as the graphic novel Copper. He is also the cover artist of the recently released 15th anniversary editions of the Harry Potter series written by J.K. Rowling, and the founder and editor of the Flight Anthologies, a critically acclaimed comic series.

“Sisters” is the companion to Raina Telgemeier’s critically acclaimed graphic memoir based on her childhood, “Smile.” Her memoir is a New York Times bestseller and winner of the Will Eisner Award for Best Publication for Teens, and the book received a Boston Globe–Horn Book Honor.
