There is hope: second John Cleese show added for fall

June 3 performance of Why There is No Hope sold out quickly

His popularity in Victoria is unquestionable and is clearly indicated by the speed at which his shows continue to sell out.

John Cleese, well-known as a founding member of British comedy troupe Monty Python as well as a best-selling author and the man behind the TV series Fawlty Towers and the film A Fish Called Wanda, quickly sold out his June 3 performance of Why There is No Hope at the Royal Theatre. As such, promoters added a second show for 2019 on Nov. 4 at the Royal.

For his new show, Cleese blends humour and political insight using his signature keen-minded, humanistic, comedic observational spin on the dysfunctional world we live in. Tickets for this fall’s Monday night show are on sale now, available at rmts.bc.ca, by phone at 250-386-6121 or at the Royal Theatre box office.
