Presenting Kim "Howard" Johnson's 'My Life with Python'
Monty Python historian/employee/collaborator/author and friend Kim “Howard” Johnson presents the history of his life with the members of Monty Python, with a particular emphasis on his weeks on the set of “Life of Brian” in Tunisia. From travels with Graham Chapman and years as John Cleese’s personal assistant, to producing Terry Jones’ 2011 tour, Howard talks about life in the Python inner circle, and presents a plethora of Python pictures from the past four decades.
Kim “Howard” Johnson is a founding member of The Baron’s Barracudas, the first house team of Chicago’s ImprovOlympic (now iO), and co-author (with Del Close and Charna Halpern) of the improvisational manual “Truth in Comedy.” He is also the author of “The Funniest One in the Room: the Lives and Legends of Del Close,” the biography of the improvisational guru of The Committee, Second City, and iO, which chronicles the history of modern improvisation through the life and death of Del Close. In addition to writing and performing, he is a comedy historian who has authored several books on Monty Python, including, most recently, “Monty Python’s Tunisian Holiday,” the journal that he kept on the set of “Life of Brian” in 1978.
