An unparalleled masterpiece, both underrated and full of heart
11 April 2012 | by jmbwithcatsSee all my reviews

John Cleese's Alimony Tour is a heartfelt and unparalleled masterpiece. An autobiographical romp through Cleese's acting career. The story of one of the truly most talented, intelligent, genre changers of comedy history.

The show is a loving tribute to those he worked with, from his mother to Graham Chapman and beyond.

Some very special moments with behind the scenes looks and secrets to how some of his most popular and controversial works got made.

I loved every minute of it.

Thank you John Cleese, you magnificent magician of comedy.
