Here to bring his “Last Time to See Me Before I Die” Tour, the (barely) living comedy legend John Cleese will perform LIVE standup at the Orpheum Theatre San Francisco on Friday, April 5th! And if you’re willing to shed a little more for upgrades, fans will be delighted to know that VIP tickets to meet the icon himself are also available.
Keep your ears open for every punchline because this Primetime Emmy Award winner still has a repertoire of jokes hidden in his sleeve. This multi-talented performer is best known as the co-founder of Monty Python and is famed for his work on Monty Python's Flying Circus, A Fish Called Wanda, Life of Brian, Fawlty Towers, as well as contributions to the Harry Potter and James Bond franchises. Make it a date for a night of laughter and reflection as we delve into the life and impact of one of the funniest entertainers in the world!
Conversations infused with dark British humor? Sign us up! “Cleese told belly-laughing anecdotes, laced with personal "dad jokes," all while discussing deeper concepts related to his comedy's reliance on anxiety; the appreciation of what appear to be valid ethnic and class stereotypes; the relevance of intention; and the therapeutic importance of humor and laughter,” a recent review shares.
As the trek title implies, this may be your last chance to catch him live on stage. But with his mother reaching a hundred years old, in addition to his unbeatable stamina, we might also need tickets for the next leg of the tour. To avoid revealing too much and to prepare audiences for what’s to come, the two-act show wraps up with a funeral speech that is both solemn and exceptionally unusual. So, grab a tissue or two – you might find yourself reaching for them!
Interestingly, a recent review dives into how the comedian has made fun of death over the years. When asked if the idea disturbed him, he shares, “I certainly don’t want to die anytime soon, there are so many things I want to find out about and understand better… and once I get there, I hope I’ll feel I’ve done enough and I don’t mind going.”
Featuring a vaulted ceiling with a Plateresque Revival facade, the San Francisco venue is certainly a sight to see! Plus, with its amazing sound quality and intimate atmosphere, there’s no better place to host the funniest event that’s about to hit the Golden Gate City. Grab your tickets for John Cleese at the Orpheum Theatre San Francisco on Friday, April 5th!
