    I loved watching Andy slide one in and make John Cleese genuinely laugh. Really cool moment:)

    Mr. Cleese has been one of my favorite entertainers for a long time. I hope he and his family and herd of large cats are all doing okay. 😸🐅🐆

    Love how Cleese involved Andy in his interview. Normally people just talk to Conan and don’t get Andy involved. Andy is amazing.

    He will also teach you how to defend against an attacker using fresh fruit as a weapon. Should set him up with TFG.

    When Holy Grail aired on KCET (the PBS affiliate in Los Angeles) during a pledge drive in the late-70s, with Graham Chapman presenting, I was in my mid-teens, and my parents sat me down to watch it.
    I had very bad asthma, so laughing too hard was very dangerous for me.
    That night, I inaugurated my “Phlegm Factor” system for rating comedy, of which that film achieved a perfect 10.0!

    PBS has an educated viewership…thats why it worked. If it was on a primetime station back then, they wouldnt have got it and it would have failed miserably
