At that time, Cleese, by his own admission, was “a typical product of bourgeois environment.” He voted for the Conservatives, dressed in the costume of a brand, almost did not drink and did not dabbled in drugs.
John Marwood Cleese was born on October 27, 1939 in Weston-Super-Mare, England, United Kingdom. His father, an insurance agent, Reginald Francis Cheese, changed his real name, when he joined the army (“cheese” – cheese).
John was the only child of elderly parents, and so his childhood was kept in a glass case. No pranks, no hooliganism for John as a child was not observed.
John graduated from the preparatory school of St. Peter, and then spent five years at Clifton College, then a couple of years he taught at the school, waiting for you to take him in Downing College.
Then the lanky (1 m 98 cm) sissy sent his foot in Cambridge University’s law faculty.
At that time, Cleese, by his own admission, was “a typical product of bourgeois environment.” He voted for the Conservatives, dressed in the costume of a brand, almost did not drink and did not dabbled in drugs. Nevertheless, the first year he was in a student theater company Footlights Club, where he met with Michael Palin, Terry Jones, Graham Chepmanom and Eric Idle, and later with the American Terry Gilliam.
Cleese then worked briefly for the BBC, and then again joined the theater troupe, this time the “Cambridge Circus”, and with it went on tour to Broadway and New Zealand. John decided to stay for some time in the States, and even worked for the magazine “Help!”, When he was there Terry Gilliam as an assistant editor. In addition, Cleese couple of months very well written articles for international policy section in “Newsweek”.
After he was admitted to work in “American Establishmenst Review”, but soon returned to London. Along with Graham Chapman, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin, he wrote for “The Frost Report”.
In 1968 he married the American actress Connie Booth. And soon this group of young people organized a “Monty Python’s Flying Circus”, whose shows are now known throughout the world.
Despite a steady job in a humorous clubs, Cleese was not thinking about becoming an actor. He is interested in painting, archeology, literature, foreign languages ??(so subsequently easily learned lines in Russian Lermontov, who had to recite in “A Fish Called Wanda”). Even when the show “Monty Python” was invited to the BBC on-Sea, Cleese long I believed that only temporarily worked as an actor. But after a couple of seasons, it became clear that “Monty Python’s Flying Circus” is here to stay. And one of the most prominent members of the show became Cleese, “crazy gentleman,” as the British called it.
In the 70s the troupe moved to the cinema. Movies “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” “Monty Python: Life of Brian,” “Monty Python: the meaning of life” today considered classics of comedy.
In the mid-80s the troupe disbanded. In 1989, he died one of the founders of “Monty Python” Graham Chapman, and plans for the reunification of the troupe had to forget.
All the “gentlemen hooligans” began to work solo. The culmination of his solo film career began Cleese comedy “A Fish Called Wanda” (1988). For her Cleese was nominated for an Oscar as best screenwriter and won the British Academy Award for best actor. Also for the “fish” Cleese was awarded the Italian “David.” But the attempt to repeat the formula for success in the movie “Fierce creation” (1997) was unsuccessful.
Then John Cleese staked itself is small, but warm place in one of the most popular series in the history of cinema – “bondiane.” Cleese was replaced by 85-year-old Desmond Llewellyn on duty “professional technical bells and whistles,” so that we can assume that he was now provided dust-free job for up to 85 years.
Cleese recently demonstrated sardonic “montipaytonovsky” humor in the comedy “Rat Race.”
And now he’s got a colorful role nicknamed the ghost Nearly Headless Nick in a new kinoseriale Harry Potter. Keep in mind – the hero got this nickname because he is a fool, but because it does not cut off the head to the end! The eccentric performance Cleese this role was a worthy continuation of the glorious traditions of the troupe “Monty Python”.
