LA COMEDY LIVE and ADRIAN BOHM PRESENTS are thrilled to announce that legendary comic actor John Cleese will return to Singapore with a brand-new show ‘In Praise of Silly’ on 07 March 2020, Saturday, 8pm at University Cultural Centre Hall, NUS!
Mr. Cleese, who until recently was a Living Legend, was last week promoted to British Institution. In that capacity, he will be regaling his Singapore audience with a wide variety of silly behaviours, incomprehensible mimes, and Algerian love songs. These will be interspersed with moments of great philosophical significance and profound spiritual insights even sillier than the other bits.
In 2014, also presented by LA Comedy Live and Adrian Bohm Presents, John Cleese sold out two nights at UCC Hall, NUS in Singapore.
‘It’s been too long since I was in Singapore. Last time I enjoyed it very much and looking forward to coming back. This will be the only Asian stop in South East Asia. See you all in March’ -- John Cleese.
Don’t miss the chance to see the comedy royalty in this thrill-of-a-lifetime evening!
