John Cleese, English actor, comedian, voice actor, screenwriter and producer was born John Marwood Cleese on October 27, 1939 in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset in South West England. He achieved success at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and as a scriptwriter and performer on The Frost Report. In the late 1960s, he co-founded Monty Python, the comedy troupe responsible for the sketch show Monty Python's Flying Circus and the four Monty Python films: And Now for Something Completely Different, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Life of Brian and The Meaning of Life. In the mid-1970s, Cleese and his first wife, Connie Booth, co-wrote and starred in the British sitcom Fawlty Towers, with Cleese receiving the 1980 BAFTA for Best Entertainment Performance. Later, he co-starred with Kevin Kline, Jamie Lee Curtis, and former Python colleague Michael Palin in A Fish Called Wanda and Fierce Creatures, both of which he also wrote. He also starred in Clockwise and has appeared in many other films, including two James Bond films as R and Q, two Harry Potter films, and the last three Shrek films. With Yes Minister writer Antony Jay, he co-founded Video Arts, a production company making entertaining training films. In 1976, Cleese co-founded The Secret Policeman's Ball benefit shows to raise funds for the human rights organisation Amnesty International. Melvyn Bragg, English broadcaster best known for his work with ITV as editor and presenter of The South Bank Show (1978-2010), and for the Radio 4 discussion series In Our Time, claimed that John Cleese was the most nervous interviewee in his career. Fawlty Towers has the unique distinction of having been officially cited as the reason for the adjournment of sessions of the British Parliament, so that members would have an opportunity not to miss that day's broadcast of the show.
