Exclusive: Clip From 'A Liar's Autobiography - The Untrue Story of Monty Python's Graham Chapman'

The Playlist By Edward Davis | The Playlist October 24, 2012 at 2:23PM

Graham Chapman, probably best remembered as "the dead one from Monty Python," writes and stars in the animated movie of his own life story, "A Liar's Autobiography." How is that? Well, although Chapman selfishly dropped dead in 1989, he had taken the trouble to record himself reading his comedic book, "A Liar's Autobiography," published in 1980. And those recordings have now ingeniously been used to provide Chapman's voice for the 3D animated feature of the same name as directed by Bill Jones and Jeff Simpson. Fellow Pythons John Cleese, Terry Jones, Michael Palin, and Terry Gilliam also turn up, playing themselves and other characters, along with a few surprise guests.

A Liar's Autobiography

Graham Chapman, probably best remembered as "the dead one from Monty Python," writes and stars in the animated movie of his own life story, "A Liar's Autobiography." How is that? Well, although Chapman selfishly dropped dead in 1989, he had taken the trouble to record himself reading his comedic book, "A Liar's Autobiography," published in 1980. And those recordings have now ingeniously been used to provide Chapman's voice for the 3D animated feature of the same name as directed by Bill Jones and Jeff Simpson.  Fellow Pythons John Cleese, Terry Jones, Michael Palin, and Terry Gilliam also turn up, playing themselves and other characters, along with a few surprise guests.

Not a true documentary, not a Monty Python film, "A Liar's Autobiography" is Chapman's own take on his bizarre life (as assisted by the directors) and his search for self-knowledge, bringing Chapman back to life in an ingenious tale of animation, told through 17 different animation styles from 14 different animators. Here's our review from TIFF, and the poster that we debuted earlier this year.

"A Liar’s Autobiography" opens in the U.S. on November 2nd both in theaters and on EPIX. Watch the clip below.
