first dave now john.
john cleese has announced he is retiring from performance saying he feels he will never be able to top fawlty towers. this is certainly possible of course, but it’s still a shame to think there will be no more new cleese. and i’m assuming no more nearly headless nick?
he also had a pop at the standard of current sitcoms whilst praising eddie izzard and ricky gervais as recent comedians he has rated.
he’s a grumpy old soul but i say ‘god bless the gangly one with a fear of chartered accountancy’
