John Cleese shows How to Finance your Divorce with new gig

Friday October 2, 2009

Former Fawlty Towers actor John Cleese has gone back on the road at the age of 70 after his divorce settlement from third wife Alyce Faye Eichelberger left him short of cash.

The star opens his one-man show, entitled A Ludicrous Evening with John Cleese… or How to Finance your Divorce, in Oslo on Friday night.

Paying off the £12 million divorce settlement adjudicated in the summer appears to be the main reason John has had to work again.

"I’d rather have been drinking coffee, reading books and writing. I can’t afford that now. It irritates me," the actor says.

John is due to take the new show, which is a mixture of topical comedy and stories from his career, to the US after his seven-day stint in Norway.
