John Cleese is one of my favorite comedians. I’m old school, lovelies. . I adore him. Many thanks to my Mister Constant for surprising me with tickets to his upcoming show. I’m so looking forward to seeing him live on the 19th. It should be a fun evening. If you aren’t familiar with his work, shame on you. 😜 Please allow me to catch you up.
Cleese is probably best known for his various roles in the British comedy Monty Python’s Flying Circus. I love him for his role as Basil Fawlty in Fawlty Towers. He is also known for his award-winning role as Archie Leach in the American / British comedy film A Fish Called Wanda. In honor of the upcoming show I give you one of his funniest television moments, followed by some Cleesisms.
“He who laughs most, learns best”
“The most creative people have this childlike facility to play.”
“A man will give up almost anything except his suffering.”
“The English contribution to world cuisine – the chip.”
“In Britain, girls seem to be either bright or attractive. In America, that’s not the case. They’re both.”
And now a tune for Wednesday. I so love these lyrics and Vance Joy.
Gold, when you see me
Hi, if you need me
Babe, that’s the way it was
That’s the history
Blue, how we used to roar
Like an open fire
That’s the way it was
But that’s history
