John Cleese Silly Walks Into the Northwest

John Cleese from Monty Python's Flying Circus is on a rare tour right now. The 70-year old Cleese is calling this the "A Final Wave at the World or The Alimony Tour, Year One." Similar to the Carol Burnett tour I just took my mom to, Cleese will talk about his life in comedy, of course hitting on Python and Fawlty Towers, and then taking questions from the audience.

I am attending the show with my one of my best/oldest friends Brendan on Wednesday in Eugene. The show in Portland tonight is sold out but it'll be more fun to see it with Brendan in Eugene anyway, despite the 109 mile drive. The venue is where my band plays the Floyd tribute shows, so it'll be nice to be there and not have to perform!

Serena Markstrom from the Register Guard in Eugene had the good fortune to interview Cleese for an article in the paper to promote the show. She published the mostly complete transcript here. Check it out!

I certainly will post something about the show on Thursday or Friday, time permitting.
