“Monty Python” star John Cleese is set to host a regular show on right-wing news channel GB News next year. The 82-year-old actor revealed his new project on BBC Radio 4’s popular “Today” program o…

The 82-year-old actor revealed his new project on BBC Radio 4’s popular “Today” program on Monday morning. “I was approached and I didn’t know who they were,” said Cleese of GB News, which set up shop in Britain in 2021. “I don’t know much about modern television because I’ve pretty much given up on it — I mean, English television. Then, I met one or two of the people concerned and had a dinner with them and I liked them very much.

The BBC, he noted, hadn’t approached him about taking part in one of their shows, but even if they did, warned Cleese, he wouldn’t be interested. “I’d say ‘Not on your nelly.’ I wouldn’t get five minutes into the first show before I got canceled or censored,” he said. Interviewed by the “Today” program’s Amol Rajan, Cleese was asked how big a threat he feels “wokeism” is to our culture.

Has John Cleese fallen on hard times that he desperately needs the money...

Him, Roger Waters and Eric Clapton on a round table talking conspiracy theories would melt our brains…

uh oh! better cancel him

It's a weird world we live in when free speech is considered right wing.

Not surprised. He is part of comedy history who was at one time on the leading edge. But he has exhibited certain racially inappropriate perspectives in that leading edge comedy.

Fantastic!

Good

That’ll be a big thrill for the tens of thousands of viewers who watch it regularly.

It's not actually right wing, it's in the centre.

Guess he still has divorces to pay for then.

From Fawlty Towers to this.

ai!

He's a member of the so social democratic party ffs! They believe in massive state intervention as in the fact they are 'social democrats', plus the mans been married about 8 time's so social conservatism isn't his thing either.

Everything is right-wing when it's not left wing

This is disappointing but not shocking, as we've also seen this with Clint Eastwood.

There are so few 'right-leaning' shows that you have to identify the ones that are. Nice.

I knew it.
