SHOW DESCRIPTION
The “One and Only” John Cleese will be making a rare appearance at Centennial Concert Hall bringing Winnipeg an evening of humour and political insights with a show entitled, “Why There is No Hope”. John is a legendary comedic actor best known for: “Monty Python’s Flying Circus”, “Fawlty Towers” and “A Fish Called Wanda”.

“The world’s funniest man” first made his mark as a member of the legendary Monty Python troupe in the 1960s and has gone on to write, produce, direct and star in some of the greatest comedic hits of the last forty years, even receiving an Oscar nomination for best screenplay for “A Fish Called Wanda”. But John is far from your garden variety entertainer. From the beginning of his career he has continually parlayed his enormous talents into advancing the political causes he believes in.

In 2014, John released his New York Times best-selling memoir, “So Anyway…” The book shares his ascent in the entertainment world, from his humble beginnings in a sleepy English town and his early comedic days at Cambridge University.
