Biography

British actor most noted for the inventive and zany "Monty Python" troupe. Handsome and hyperactive, 6' 5", he wrote and played in humor sketches and radio comedy while still in Cambridge.

Cleese developed the outstanding "Monte Python" team along with Terry Jones, Eric Idle and Graham Chapman, creating the TV series and feature films. Apart from the Python group, he played in a hilarious sit-com "Fawlty Towers" for 12 episodes, and in 1972 he started Video Arts, writing and producing more than 70 business training films that use humor to make the point.

While touring in the United States he met an American girl whom he married in 1968; their daughter was born 1971 and they divorced in 1976. He made a third marriage 12/28/1992 to U.S. psychoanalyst Alyce Faye Eichelberger in the Barbados.

Cleese won a lawsuit for libel of $48,000 on 7/30/1992 from The Sun tabloid which had printed an article in March about his sex drive. He donated the winning sum to the Fulbright Foundation.
