Biography Marvud John Cleese (John Cleese)
Marvud John Cleese was born on October 27, 1939 in Weston-super-Mare, England, UK. His father, an insurance agent Reginald Francis Cheese, changed his real name, when he joined the army ( "cheese" - cheese).
John was the only child of older parents, and therefore his childhood kept under a glass cover. No pranks, no hooliganism John childhood was not observed.
John graduated from preparatory school Sv. Peter then spent five years at Clifton College, then a couple of years he taught at his school, waiting to see whether it will be at Downing College.
. Then this lanky (1 m 98 cm) mama's boy bent his steps to the Cambridge University's law faculty.
. At that time, Cleese, by his own admission, was "a typical product of the bourgeois environment"
. He voted for the Conservatives, dressed in a suit with a brand-new, hardly drank and dabbled in drugs. Nevertheless, at the very first year he was in a student theater company Footlights Club, where he met with Michael Palin, Terry Jones, Graham Chepmanom and Eric Idle and a little later with the American Terry Gilliam.
. Then Cleese while working at the Air Force, and then again joined a theater troupe, this time, "Cambridge Circus", and with it went on tour to Broadway and New Zealand
. John decided to stay for some time in the States and even worked for the magazine "Help!", When he was there, Terry Gilliam at the post of Assistant Editor. In addition, Cleese couple of months very well written articles for the section of international politics in "Newsweek".
After he entered was at work in "American Establishmenst Review", but soon returned to London. Together with Graham Chapman, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin, he wrote for "The Frost Report".
In 1968 he married the American actress Connie Booth. And soon this group of young people organized a "Monty Python's Flying Circus," whose shows are now known around the world.
Despite the continuing work in the comic club, Cleese was not thinking about an acting career. He was fond of painting, archeology, literature, foreign languages (so subsequently easily learned lines in Russian Lermontov, which he had to recite the "Fish Called Wanda"). Even when the show "Monty Python" was invited to the BBC, C, Cleese long believed that only temporarily worked as an actor. But after a couple of seasons, it became clear that the "Monty Python's Flying Circus" come here to stay. And one of the brightest members of this show was Cleese, "crazy gentleman," as the British called it.
In the 70's troupe moved to the cinema. Film "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," Monty Python: Life of Brian "" Monty Python: the Meaning of Life "today considered classics of comedy.
In the mid-80's troupe disbanded. In 1989, he died one of the founders of the Monty Python Graham Chapman, and the plans for the reunification of the troupe had to forget.
All the "gentlemen hooligans" started working solo. The culmination of a solo film career began Cleese comedy "Fish Called Wanda" (1988). During her Cleese was nominated for an Oscar as best screenwriter and won the British Academy Awards as best actor. Also for "Fish" Cleese was awarded the Italian "David". But the attempt to repeat the formula for success in the film "Savage creation" (1997) was unsuccessful.
Then John Cleese staked a small but warm place in one of the most famous serials in film history - "bondiane". Cleese was replaced by 85-year-old Desmond Llewelyn in office "specialist technical gadgets", so that we can assume that he was now assured plum job of work to 85 years.
. Cleese recently demonstrated sardonic "montipaytonovsky" humor in the comedy "Rat Race".
. And now he's got colorful role, nicknamed the ghost Nearly Headless Nick in the new kinoseriale Harry Potter
. Keep in mind - the hero got the nickname not because he is a fool, but because he cut off his head not to the end! In eccentric performance Cleese, this role has become a worthy continuation of the glorious traditions of the troupe "Monty Python"
