Eric Idle's Road to Mars

Has anyone else here read it? I haven’t quite decided what I think of it - it’s fairly well-written, and the red nose/white face clown idea is interesting, but the whole point of the book was the Theory of Levity? I thought ‘Comedy as the opposite of Gravity’ was an old Firesign Theater gag.

There’s also a glaring error in his columns of 20th Cent. red noses and white faces - was that purposeful?

Any opinions?

Well, I haven’t read it, but I did go see him read portions of it at a little book signing show he did here in Chicago.

I guess that’s all I have to say about that.

Sorry for wasting your time.
