John Cleese Is Hopeless

Comedy legend John Cleese joins the show this week to talk about his first-ever live stream event ‘Why There Is No Hope.’ During this rousing conversation, he shares his take on the laughable “hypocrisy” of Donald Trump, why Monty Python steered clear of overtly political satire, his crusade against “woke” comedy and the people who were offended by the crucifixion scene in “Life of Brian.” He also reveals the biggest regret of his professional career and what he hopes his comedy legacy will be.
