John Cleese will embark on the first, and possibly last, cross-Canadian tour of his incomparable career from September 13th to October 27th in John Cleese: Last Time To See Me Before I Die. The seven-city tour will see the legendary British comic perform multiple performances at intimate venues from coast-to-coast, beginning in Halifax, and ending in Vancouver, with stops in Ottawa, Toronto, Edmonton, Calgary, and Victoria along the way.
One of the most influential and important comedic voices in entertainment history, Cleese is a founding member of Monty Python, and responsible for some the most iconic films and television comedies ever made, including: Do Not Adjust Your Set, And Now For Something Completely Different, The Ruttles, Life Of Brian, Meaning Of Life, and Fawlty Towers. John has also starred in such major Hollywood hits as A Fish Called Wanda, Silverado, Fierce Creatures, as well as multiple installments of the Harry Potter and James Bond franchises.
In Last Time To See Me Before I Die, Cleese will regale fans with stories and exclusive clips from his illustrious 40-year career, before submitting to an extended questions and answer period with members of his audience. Canadian comedy fans simply cannot afford to miss this once-in-lifetime, John’s specifically, to get up close and personal with a true living legend before he, you know, dies*.
*No one actually knows when John Cleese is going to die. We mean, presumably he will someday. But he’s not suffering from any kind of illness or disease, nor is anyone planning to kill him. At least, not as far as we know.
