Synopsis

Graham Chapman is said to have been Monty Python's one true anarchist. Like his mentors Spike Milligan and Peter Cook, the man who portrayed the mistaken messiah in Life of Brian lived his life on and off stage with a sheer delight in madness for its own sake. 'I want to be a loony,' he said, 'it's quite an important thing.' Calcium Made Interesting contains everything from Graham Chapman's unpublished sketches and transcripts of his lecture tours to letters to his bank manager and reflections on his fellow Pythons and as a result offers a unique insight into the real Graham Chapman. Previously unpublished essays and notes help chart the life and times of a comic legend and include such gems as his reflections on how it feels to be crucified and his nostalgic memories of blowing up hotel rooms with his good friend Keith Moon. Funny and surreal, this collection captures the eclectic spirit of a true genius and confirms Graham Chapman's lasting impact on British comedy.
