Minister of Silly Walks pays Toronto a visit
John Cleese is one of the most recognizable comedians on the planet, having first put the world in stitches as a member of Monty Python’s Flying Circus, turning out movies such as Life of Brian and The Meaning of Life and a slew of sketches, including the legendary Ministry of Silly Walks. Following his stint with Monty Python, Cleese and his contemporaries set their sights on Hollywood. He wrote and starred opposite Jamie Lee Curtis in the awardwinning film A Fish Called Wanda. And who could forget Fawlty Towers or his role as Q in James Bond films and so much more over a career that spans almost six decades? On April 9, Cleese is making a Toronto appearance to share his stories and humorous insights gleaned from a life in comedy.
