Reading the whiners that wished John had not criticized Trump and the nightmare his existence is along with Rupert Murdoch and his contribution to ending civility in the world. Fortunately John properly denounced and laughed at these horrible people! Seeing this icon of comedy in person was well worth the cost. John is like a member of "The Beatles Of Comedy!"

5.0 star rating Greg from Calgary, Alberta


This show was awful. Waste of my money and a slight at my moral fibre. Sitting through racist jokes then having them justified in an idiotic manner, trying to be funny . That ship has sailed Monty! Glad I was able to help pay your 20 million alimony. An insult to those few remaining fans you have left. Gladly I didn’t vip. Ouch. Call it a Day John , you are embarrassing what legacy you had.

5.0 star rating Matthew Alvarado from Des Moines, Iowa


Well, that was absolute rubbish. I certainly hope the 90th Birthday Bonanza will be better. I plan to start camping out for those tickets tomorrow.

I read many reviews blasting Mr.Cleese from previous shows. My group thought he was wonderful. The man is 84, were you expecting back handsprings across the stage. He told many stories about his life and the pythons. He did talk a lot about Graham and that would be normal, he loved his best friend. His stories were very entertaining. His jokes were very Python meaning they were good hearted jabs at people and other groups. He was not mean spirited towards people. He was doing what he has been doing for 50 years. He talked a bit about people being thin skinned and woke. That would be typical of a man his age and the way he would think. What do you expect. Him to be a progressive “unfunny” comic. He is a member of a comedy troop that relished being “naughty”, his word not mine. His daughter was not very funny. She opened the show and assisted with the Q&A. In general if you are a fan of Python and Fawlty towers. You will really enjoy this show. Thank you Mr.Cleese you are a legend.

For some reason, the idiots that love Drump thought Cleese was a supporter. I saw many leave because of this. Glad they left. Cleese was well spoken, funny as hell, and did not disappoint. Can't say the same for his daughter's stand up. But to see a legend Python was a treat!

4.0 star rating Domenic from Cambridge, Ontario


It was lovely to see see Mr. Cleese regale us all with stories of his life, from boy to star, and a bit in between. He ventured into his childhood with his mother, his Pre, During, and Post Python years, and even talked of his personal sadness at the death of his friend and writing partner, Graham Chapman. All in all, it was a wonderful evening filled with hilarious anecdotes, and a comedy legend who, I'm sure, had too many stories to cram into two hours. But where were the questions?! We were promised a Q&A when purchasing our tickets but didn't get one! Both my date and myself were very disappointed that there was not even an apology for such an oversight, whatever the reason. If there had been some mention of something, I'm sure I would move on. Yet now I have a question unanswered, so perhaps I'll leave it with you. In your opinion, why do you think so many comedians of the 60's and 70's had such tormented personal lives, and what draws these types to comedy in the first place?

4.0 star rating Heathersneste from Charlotte, North Carolina


First I want to say that there was no film in the beginning which many previous reviews had complained about. I love Cleese, but can not say I am a fan of Python, so no film made me very happy. The evening was highly intelligent and thought provoking. The fact that I was able to purchase discounted tickets via Groupon made it that much better! John Cleese is extremely intelligent and speaks to challenge your beliefs which obviously unnerved people since there were many empty seats, but what can you expect in Charlotte, NC.
