This event is now sold out.

Sunshine Coast Libraries invites comedy fans and readers to enjoy an evening with international icon Eric Idle at the USC Innovation Centre from 6.30pm on Saturday, 24 November.

Eric will talk in-conversation with special guest, Mix FM radio personality Todd Widdicombe, about his autobiography Always Look on the Bright Side of Life.

From ingenious comic performer, founding member of Monty Python and creator of Spamalot, his memoir promises unparalleled wit and heartfelt candour.

The Monty Python’s Flying Circus sketch-comedy show went on to produce some of the most enduring comedy movies of all time – The Holy Grail, Life of Brian and The Meaning of Life.

The book reflects on Eric’s remarkable journey from his childhood, through to his successful career in comedy, television, theatre and film.

Coming of age as a writer and comedian during the Sixties and Seventies, Eric stumbled into the crossroads of the Cultural Revolution, he captures a time of tremendous creative output with equal parts hilarity and heart.

In Always Look on the Bright Side of Life, named after a song he wrote for Life of Brian which has since become the number-one song played at funerals in the UK, he shares the highlights of his life and five decade long career.

This special literary event is part of a series of Sunshine Coast Libraries author events hosted at various locations across the region.

Pre-signed copies of Eric’s books will be available for purchase at the venue. Note: book signing with the author will not be available.

Enjoy live music by talented local artist Shannon Sol Carrroll.

Light refreshments are provided and a cash bar is available from 6.30pm.
