- John Cleese: Cancel Me will see the comedian ask if it is possible to create comedy without causing offence.
- Throughout the series, the comedian will talk to a variety of people – including some famous faces who claim to have been ‘cancelled’ and others who have campaigned against comedians and programmes – to ask if it is possible to create comedy without causing offence.
- Speaking about the programme, Cleese said, “I’m delighted to have a chance to find out, on camera, about all the aspects of so-called Political Correctness.
- Last year, he criticised UK channel UKTV, after they removed a line from an episode of Fawlty Towers which saw a character using the N-word.
