Humor • 2 hrs. • Audio Program • © 1999

The funniest moments from John Cleese's BBC career are compiled into a program that will have you screaming with laughter from beginning to end. Skits from "Fawlty Towers," "The Frost Report," "Monty Python," and others are interspersed with short comments from the modest and likable Cleese. He tells us about the obnoxious inn-keeper he encountered while making a film in Morocco who provided the model for Basil Fawlty. After playing the famous "Don't Mention the War" skit from "Fawlty Towers," Cleese relates how gratified he was to meet locals in Germany who also appreciated it. Cleese is a comic genius--he even does the "funny walk" on the radio and somehow gets away with it. A.B. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 05]
