John Cleese

Sat., Mar. 18, 2017 at 3 & 8 p.m

And now for something completely different. Britain’s living legend of comedy John Cleese has written, produced, directed, and starred in a plethora of comedic hits, including the British sitcom “Fawlty Towers” and the film A Fish Called Wanda, for which he received an Oscar nomination for best screenplay. Now he’s hitting the road for a leisurely walk through his life and laughs. Recalling stories from his autobiography “So, Anyway,” the celebrated co-founder of Monty Python yacks on about becoming a celebrity despite having some talent. In Cleese's very own words: "It is an evening of well-honed anecdotes, psychoanalytical tid-bits and unprovoked attacks on former colleagues.”


It’s the life of Britain’s most revered and ridiculous son, a not-to-be missed journey from impropriety to notoriety. He’s not dead yet! Don’t wait another minute and join John Cleese on a stroll down comedy lane.
