John Cleese doesn't like being funny any more. (Yes, please do note that 'any more' is two words.) This makes me somewhat sad. Then again:
...Cleese did say he enjoyed some contemporary comedians and shows, citing Ricky Gervais’s The Office, Chris Langham and Paul Whitehouse in Help, Eddie Izzard and Bill Hicks, who he described as ‘what Lenny Bruce was supposed to be, but never was’.
So at least he's not completely off his rocker yet.

Speaking of our Eddie, Nate and I saw "My Super Ex-Girlfriend" on Tuesday night. I hate to say this, but I was embarrassed for Eddie-- he had to use his American accent, which, while so hilarious used for comic effect ("Awesome!" "You mean like a hot dog?"), as a legitimate accent without any winking to the audience, it's TERRRRRRIBLE. Not only that, bless him, he had hardly any material to work with. His best line: "No, the ham". He looked adorable, and I was instantly galvanized whenever he showed up on screen (which was hardly ever, actually), but it was overall a huge disappointment. I'm curious as to what you thought...
