Cleese encounters – jonathan margolis. – Continuing my biographical bent at the moment, I picked this 1992 version of the book up in a second hand shop. The contrast between these two comic greats is amazing – whereas Sellars went for the ‘crazed artistic schizophrenic genius’ style, Cleese constantly re-invents himself and grows around the ‘repressed English middle class’ medium. Fascinating stuff, and well researched given that Margolis was not allowed to talk with Cleese and this is all through secondary media.
