John Cleese and Eric Idle are doing a two-man tour of the American southwest which will bring them to the Plaza Theatre in El Paso on Saturday November, 26th. 

We had the chance to talk to Mr. Cleese. In the following interview we talk about the way audiences have changed in the past five decades; What Cleese said last week on Conan that had him being pilloried in the U.K. press; his thoughts on the 2016 American elections. And, we get to hear some of the new material that Cleese and Idle are doing on this latest tour. 

Some of you younger folks might know John Cleese as "Nearly-Headless Nick" in the Harry Potter movies. To us longtime fans he will always be "The Man Trying to Return a Dead Parrot to the Pet Store" and, of course, as the Black Knight in Monty Python and the Holy Grail who has both arms and legs chopped of but want to continue the fight nonetheless. I hope you enjoy the interview as much as I did.
