My spouse and I attended the John Cleese show last evening. We are of the age who were privileged enough to grow up with Cleese’s amazing wit and wonderful manipulation of history and culture. Me Cleese holds high esteem in my memory of his lifetime of histerical work. Unfortunately his performance last night was mostly irrelevant and I found myself having to force a laugh here and there just to be polite. I certainly don’t wish to be cruel to one of my all time hero’s but I found his material old and worn. I’m afraid the phrase “Donald Trump” is no longer worthy of a giggle. Sorry John, I still love you.

You watch a 43 year old movie, then the star anticlimactically comes out to answer questions. He is accidentally funny, and then we all go home. 3 hours of life l will never get back.

Been a fan for decades but we left 40 minutes in... waste of money and time. Not funny...didnt know his lines without a teleprompter...if i wanted to read a biography of him, i can google it. He must be broke....what an embarrassment to his legacy.

I brought my two boys, as their Christmas gift, to this show. It cost nearly $200.00 for the 3 of us and we are all big fans of the work of John Cleese. Unfortunately, there was very little mention of his life's work. The "show" mostly consisted of one sided political commentary, hypocritical comments about wealthy individuals and needless information about his ex-wives. He told a few lame ethnic jokes at the end but not once did we even crack a smile. The three of us sat through the bitter and humorless rantings of an angry old man and I for one felt like we were all just there to pay his alimony. The slide show behind him showed photos of people he was mentioning and an email address, no creativity, no irreverent humor. It was almost exactly 90 minutes and I would be grateful to have both the time and money back in my possession.

I really am tired of entertainers giving their political opinion. Was looking forward to an evening of entertainment and instead it was not funny and really tired. Another reviewer said never meet your idol and I think that’s right. Not a night of humor in the vein of Monty Python

1.0 star rating Jane from New Jersey


Show is garbage.. lasted 45 minutes and we walked out... quite annoying.. Cleese is actually part of the problem. Stick to making funny movies..

If I could give 0 stars I would. I left halfway through the show. Was genuinely horrible and not funny whatsoever.
