John Cleese On Why The U.S Fawlty Towers Cut Basil From Show

We had the legendary John Cleese on the show this morning, and he spoke about everything from Monty Python to Fawlty Towers to auditioning people for the Fawlty Towers stage show.

He also spoke about how when the U.S tried to emulate the show and do their own version, they cut a very important part... BASIL!

The show obviously didn't do as well as the U.K version...

John is in the midst of putting together a stage show for Fawlty Towers, and he will perform a comedy show with his Monty Python co-star Eric Idle around Australia.
