Bounding into Comics
Monty Python and Fawlty Towers star John Cleese has drawn the ire of the Left-wing outrage mob after announcing that he will be the host of an as-of-yet unnamed ‘free speech show’ on the anti-woke GB News channel set to air later this year.
The announcement was actually made by Cleese himself during an appearance on BBC Radio 4’s Today show, wherein the renowned comedian asserted, “The nice thing about talking to the GB News audience is that they may not be used to hearing the sort of things I’ll be saying.”
“The only thing is… the BBC won’t come to me and say, ‘Would you like to have some one-hour shows?’” He elaborated. “And if they did I would say, ‘Not on your nelly!’ because I wouldn’t get 5 minutes into the first show before I’d been cancelled or censored.”
As soon as the Monty Python actor made those comments, Today host Amol Rajan – seemingly moving to abruptly end their interview – reminded the comedian that their network gave him an uncensored platform five full minutes – something that Cleese would later claim was not true. more
