A Liar’s Autobiography: The Untrue Story Of Monty Python’s Graham Chapman

 November 2, 2012

The death of Graham Chapman in 1989 meant that he would never again be able to participate in any Monty Python projects, a decision he made without even deigning to consult with the other members of the troupe. Fortunately, however, Chapman had the good sense to record himself reading his occasionally true memoir, A Liar’s Autobiography, allowing the rest of the Pythons to resurrect Chapman for one last film using animation and great advancements in playing-tape-recordings-of-dead-people technology. That film, A Liar’s Autobiography: The Untrue Story Of Monty Python’s Graham Chapman, is due to premiere on EPIX and in select theaters in 3-D on Friday, Nov. 2, reuniting the entire Python gang (in animated form, anyway) as they bring Chapman back to cartoon life to tell his strange tale, a journey that includes being a doctor, performing as one of the most influential comedy troupes of all time, and—as seen in this exclusive clip—really, really enjoying being gay and sitting on faces.
