Come spend a hilarious evening with the “One and Only” John Cleese. John is a legendary comedic actor best known for “Monty Python’s Flying Circus,” “Fawlty Towers” and “A Fish Called Wanda.” “The world’s funniest man” first made his mark as a member of the legendary Monty Python troupe in the 1960s and has gone on to write, produce, direct and star in some of the greatest comedic hits of the last forty years, even receiving an Oscar nomination for best screenplay for “A Fish Called Wanda.”From the beginning of his career he has continually parlayed his enormous talents into advancing the political causes he believes in.
In 2014, John released his New York Times best-selling memoir, “So Anyway…” The book shares his ascent in the entertainment world, from his humble beginnings in a sleepy English town and his early comedic days at Cambridge University.
