It’s safe to say if you don’t know who John Cleese is, you’ve missed out on some of the best British comedy of our time. From his time with the oddball Pythons to his role as the marvelously rude hotel owner in Faulty Towers, Cleese (turning 71 this year) has really been consummately funny in everything he does, even in his podcasts. See the latest one below – it’s #34 and entitled An Audience with The Headmaster.
