    Anyone a fan of "Fawlty Towers"?

    This show was only on for, like, 13 episodes, but I swear to GOD it was one of the funniest shows I ever saw! I starred John Cleese from "Monty Python" as a British inn owner named Basil Fawlty. Here is a clip of scenes with his Spanish waiter "Manuel":

    In college, I played the part of Lloyd Dallas in a production of "Noises Off!"
    To prep my English accent for that play, I watched a lot of "Fawlty Towers" and tried to use Cleese's accent there for a base.

    It has been shown here a lot of times.

    John Cleese sure can be funny, and he's at his best in Fawlty Towers.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.
