John Cleese on what makes comedy and why he'd rather not be famous
Charlie Chaplin once said a day without laughter is a day wasted. By that measure, we can assure you there has been little waste in the life of John Cleese. He is probably best known as a co-founder of Monty Python's Flying Circus, which has been hailed as one of the best television programs of all time. It aired from 1969 to 1974.
He is also the co-creator of Fawlty Towers, an immensely popular British sitcom that developed a cult following. He has countless other acting, writing and production credits to his name.
Michael's interview with John Cleese was first broadcast in November.
