Min­is­ter of Silly Walks pays Toronto a visit

Annex Post - - CURRENTS -

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.
