Cleese writing memoirs

Veteran funnyman John Cleese is to tell his life story in a new book.

The Monty Python star will lift the lid on his experiences in the upcoming tome with the help of a biographer - they will write alternate pages, with Cleese drawing on his memories for his parts.

He tells The Sun, "I don't think anybody's ever done one like this. I'd been putting it off - partly because I was too busy, and also because it was too difficult trying to remember things."
