John Cleese (1939) is a British comedian, famous for his roles in Monty Python and "Fawlty Towers". During the 1980s he became active in the Social Democratic Party and even made commercials for the party


In Spitting ImageEdit

Earlier episodes of the show often drew comparison between him and David Owen, who were both tall men who spoke with a stiff, upper lip and high voice. One sketch has Owen imitating Cleese in the famous Dead Parrot sketch from Monty Python's Flying Circus, only talking about his "dead party".

Later a Cleese puppet with a large chin did appear in "Spitting Image", where Cleese talks with Owen about the Social Democratic Party. The sketch also poked fun at The Ministry of Silly Walks and the Argument Sketch from Monty Python.
