DAVIS — Comedy legend John Cleese will be at UC Davis for a Live on Stage for conversation and Q&A after a screening of "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" on Wednesday, March 28, 2018 at 8 p.m. in Jackson Hall at the Mondavi Center. 

Cleese may or may not sillwalk onto the stage to tell stories of his life and career; and he may finally divulge the airspeed of an unladen swallow. He has requested absurd and/or ridiculous questions only, please.

A limited number of VIP tickets will be available, which include a photo opportunity with Cleese.

Tickets start at $52 and go on sale Friday, Nov. 17 at noon at mondaviarts.org, 530-754-5422 or the Mondavi Center Ticket Office.

In addition to appearing on television and in films, Cleese is the co-author of two best-selling books on psychology, "Families and How to Survive Them" and "Life and How to Survive It." He recently completed his autobiography "So, Anyway…," which was described by the Daily Mail as “self-obsessed.” In his twilight years, Cleese passes his time writing film scripts, giving speeches to business audiences, doing seminars on creativity, teaching at Cornell University, paying alimony and doting on three huge cats and a fish.
