John will regale fans with stories and exclusive clips from his illustrious 40 year career. It’s an opportunity to get up close and personal with a true living legend. Cleese, a force behind some of the most ground-breaking comedy of the 20th Century will perform shows in Tasmania, Melbourne and Sydney only.
His last national tour in 2012 was a total sell out and this encore tour will be prior to the recently announced Monty Python reunion in London in July.
He is loved the world over for his comedic antics in cult films such as Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life, The Life of Brian and Fierce Creatures. In 1998 Cleese won a British Academy Award for Best Actor in A Fish Called Wanda, which also starred Jamie Lee Curtis and Kevin Kline. He also appeared in two James Bond movies – The World Is Not Enough and Die Another Day. His distinctive English accent has been put to good use on several animated children’s films, voicing King Harold in Shrek 2, Shrek The Third, and Shrek Forever After and Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone; and of course the ever memorable television series Fawlty Towers.
Few comedy troupes have reached the same fame of Monty Python, and a large part of that success was due to John Cleese and his impeccable timing and sense of humour.
Cleese has mastered everything from dry wit to slapstick humour, making his type of humour one that everyone can enjoy. He is the master comedian and admired and respected by everyone.
Cleese is looking forward returning to Australia to perform and soak up our summer sun!
