The comedy giant (literally: he was already 6ft tall by the age of 13) is known and loved for his performances in Monty Python, Fawlty Towers and films from A Fish Called Wanda to Shrek.
This year, Cleese released a new book, So, Anyway, tales from which he’ll be sharing in what’s sure to be a night of laughter, absurdity and dry, ever-so- English humour.
It will be somewhat of a homecoming for Cleese, who as a younger man read law here at Downing College and joined Footlights, where he met writing partner and fellow Python, Graham Chapman.
Join him at Cambridge Arts Theatre, 19 October, 7.45pm. Tickets £25.
