Come and pay your respects to one of the most iconic and beloved comedians of our time in a night of unparalleled laughter and wit. 

(Barely) living comedy legend, John Cleese, is returning to Philadelphia for a live and truly memorable evening of comedy and conversation. With all-new routines shaped by his impeccable timing, trademark eccentricity and clever word play, John Cleese demonstrates through observational humor and gifted storytelling how he has achieved nothing short of comedy royalty status. 

This multi-hyphenate performer is best known as the co-founder of Monty Python, and is celebrated for his work on Monty Python's Flying Circus, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Life of Brian, Fawlty Towers, A Fish Called Wanda, as well as the James Bond and Harry Potter franchises. Don't miss your chance to see this hilarious and insightful look at the life and work of one of the world's funniest entertainers in this thrill-of-a-lifetime evening.
