(RED BANK, NJ) -- Count Basie Center for the Arts presents An Evening of Humor with John Cleese "Why There Is No Hope" on Thursday, October 7, 2021 at 7:30pm. Don’t miss the “One and Only” John Cleese as he examines the dysfunctional world we live in and “Why There is no Hope.”
“The world’s funniest man” first made his mark as a member of the legendary Monty Python troupe in the 1960s and has gone on to write, produce, direct and star in some of the greatest comedic hits of the last forty years, even receiving an Oscar nomination for best screenplay for “A Fish Called Wanda”. But John is far from your garden variety entertainer. From the beginning of his career he has continually parlayed his enormous talents into advancing the political causes he believes in.
In 2014, John released his New York Times best-selling memoir, “So Anyway…” The book shares his ascent in the entertainment world, from his humble beginnings in a sleepy English town and his early comedic days at Cambridge University.
