With bias aside, the kickoff week for John Cleese’s So, Anyway… has surpassed all expectations.
The media interviews have gone very well (and if you haven’t seen John and Jon on The Daily Show, drop everything and google it!). And the interviews and audiences have all been outstanding—each one different, but great. (Hopefully the standard won’t drop too badly this Tuesday night.)
So when will you be able to see John Cleese for yourself? If you’re in the middle of the U.S. of Canada this week, you’re in luck.
John and I will be flying in from the Great White North for an interview at 7 pm on Tuesday night at the Tivoli Theatre at 5021 Highland Avenue in Downers Grove, IL. There, I will subject him to a thorough grilling about Cleese minutia, the likes of which other interviewers can only dream. A few tickets remain—contact Anderson’s Bookshop in Downers Grove or Naperville—but you’d better do it quickly!
Then on Wednesday, John will be interviewed by none other than Camilla Cleese at the totally sold out iO Theatre in Chicago before an audience of students. Apparently, Miss Cleese has known the author for a number of years as well, so this sounds like it’ll be much fun. If you didn’t get tickets in the first 36 hours, eat your hearts out…
And, because he’s a glutton for punishment, later on that Wednesday, John will be interviewed at 7:30 at the Midland Theatre in Kansas City. If this was in any other city, it would be sold out, but because Kansas City theatres are large enough to house entire towns, a few tickets remain. John has vowed to continue his non-stop interviews with Kansas City media until no tickets remain.
Somehow, we will not be doing an event on Thursday evening, so John has vowed to continue his unrelenting assault on the Vancouver media prior to his public book signing at Chapters Robson on Friday night. And next Saturday night will be a sold-out extravaganza at the Farquhar Auditorium.
Next Sunday, join Seattle Cleeseheads for 93 minutes of amazement and enlightenment at the University Temple United Methodist Church for a University Bookstore interview.
As you can tell, a great many of these are sold out and the rest are selling fast. Most of the ticket prices include a copy of So Anyway… and I would suggest acting quickly. Everyone seems to be having a very good time…
