WITH typical black humour, funny man John Cleese will be appearing in his Last Time to See Me before I Die stand up show at Palma Auditorium on Saturday June 5.
At 80, he has been threatening to ‘pop his clogs’ for the past six years but it seems that audiences simply won’t let him go which is why he continues to tour.
Best known for Monty Python and the short lived Fawlty Towers, Cleese has been an actor, comic and producer of training films for decades and with his often-pained look and laconic delivery, he has been an example to many British comic actors.
His previous European tour sold out in a flash and received rave reviews, and now the European fans of Cleese and Monty Python get yet another chance to see him one last time.
The show ends with both a solemn and very unusual funeral speech to himself and it is possibly the last time one can see him live on stage in Mallorca, but considering his mother was 101 years old hopefully, this oration may still be a bit premature.
Tickets cost €45, €65 and €75 online from the Auditorium.
