About John Cleese

“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. Adding on to his various movie roles, Cleese is currently starring Paramount Pictures’ “Clifford The Big Red Dog” and in Netflix’s “Father Christmas Is Back” with Elizabeth Hurley. Far from your garden variety entertainer from his early comedic days at Cambridge University, to his landmark roles as an actor and founding member of Monty Python’s Flying Circus, Cleese has continually parlayed his enormous talents into advancing the causes he believes in and writing several best sellers including his New York Times best-selling memoir, “So Anyway…”.
