Come­back Cor­ner

The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - FOOD & DRINK -

John Cleese

is best known as Basil Fawlty (right) from the hugely suc­cess­ful Fawlty Tow­ers back in the 70s, and his sit­com ap­pear­ances since have been few. His most re­cent was as Lyle Fin­ster in Will & Grace in 2003- 4, but he re­turns to TV this week as ther­a­pist Dr Grant in Whitney – a fic­tion­alised ver­sion of the life of US come­di­enne Whitney Cum­mings (left, with Cleese). The 72-year-old, once a mem­ber of Monty Python’s Fly­ing Cir­cus, has per­formed in stage shows in re­cent years, in­clud­ing The Al­imony Tour, which he put on to help pay for his di­vorce from third wife Alyce Faye Eichel­berger. Whitney, Tues­day, 9pm, Com­edy Cen­tral.
