In detail

It was during his time at Cambridge that John discovered he could create comedy material. He began to notice certain patterns to his creativity. Subsequently, a good friend who was a professor of psychology at Sussex University showed John all the relevant creativity research. John then realized that current business ethos worked against creativity, and he began to study how people could become more creative within such an un-helpful environment. John started his professional show business career in 1966 when he joined in The Frost Report at the BBC, as both a performer and writer. John played his part in creating such comedy classics as Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Life of Brian, The Meaning of Life, Fawlty Towers and A Fish Called Wanda.
