John Cleese is an English actor, writer, comedian and film producer, perhaps best known for his work as part of Monty Python, a comedy troupe responsible for the sketch show Monty Python’s Flying Circus and four films, which he joined in the late 1960s, and for Fawlty Towers. Prior to Monty Python, he was a scriptwriter and performer on The Frost Report.
During the 1970s, Cleese co-wrote and starred in British sitcom Fawlty Towers, and later co-starred in A Fish Called Wanda with Kevin Kline, Jamie Lee Curtis and former Python colleague Michael Palin. He has also appeared in the James Bond, Harry Potter and theShrek film series. He also supplies his distinctive voice to various animates and video projects, as well as advertisements.
As a co-founder of Video Arts, Cleese makes entertaining training films, and despite the fame he has achieved as part of some of the most iconic comedy classics ever made, his public presentations are underlined by his experiences of founding and running Video Arts.
Video Arts produced 100 films teaching management skills, sales and service between the years of 1972 and 1991, and Cleese wrote and appeared in a number of them. He also wrote two psychological bestsellers.
From 1973 until 1976, he was Rector of the University of St Andrews, and in his capacity as Professor-at-large at Cornell University in New York, he lectures about business, writing and psychology. As such, he speaks to businesses all over the world, chiefly about management and psychology and how they’re related, and uses humour to illustrate the key points of his presentations.
John’s one-person show called “Why There Is No Hope.” was livestreamed from London’s (UK) Cadogan Hall in summer 2021, and he continues to tour.
