John Cleese on Spud, comedy and SA wine

2013-06-13 10:13

At 73, John Cleese shows no signs of slowing down! Not only is Spud 2: The Madness Continues, about to hit our screens, but the British icon is returning to our shores for his second comedy show after his incredibly successful Alimony Tour in 2011.


The year is 1991, and Spud Milton's long walk to manhood is still creeping along at an unnervingly slow pace. Approaching the ripe old age of fifteen and still with no signs of the much-anticipated ball-drop, Spud is coming to terms with the fact that he may well be a freak of nature. Starring: John Cleese, Troye Sivan, Jason Cope, Jeremy Crutchley, Tanit Phoenix. In cinemas 21 June.
