Now for something completely different.
You may know him as Lancelot. Or Basil Fawlty. Or Archie Leach. A man of many roles over his prolific career, John Cleese is coming to the Global Event Center on November 30 as himself in his new one-man show, An Evening with John Cleese.
Best known for his comedic acting and involvement in Monty Python’s Flying Circus, John Cleese has been in show business for over 50 years. But his incredible career is more than just being the Minister of Silly Walks. He rose to great acclaim as a voice actor, producer, comedian and screenwriter. His screenplay for A Fish Called Wanda received a nomination for an Academy Award, after all!
Showing manic versatility, Cleese also founded and acted for the HR and educational video firm Video Arts from 1972 to the mid 2000s, with the goal of elevating often snoozeworthy educational films with well-known actors and actual humor.
This show starts at 8:00 PM. Doors open at 6:30 PM. Tickets available at Ticketmaster or the Global Event Center box office. Just know, if you make your way to WinStar on November 30, you won’t have to fuss with calculating the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow.
