"Mr. Cleese, British Comedy God and giver of all that is funny, you worked with your wife Connie Booth in Fawlty Towers. But between the first and second series, the two of you got divorced, yet you still wrote and performed on the show. How did that work out for you?"

He gave a long answer, but basically, they always had a good working relationship, but drove each other crazy when they lived together. That good working relationship survived the divorce, and Cleese and Booth remain friends to this day.

I'm almost ashamed to say that I actually skulked around the stage door waiting for John Cleese to emerge. I've been to hundreds concerts and other performances and I've never done anything like that before. But there a stood in the cold with a camera, pen, and DVD of "Life of Brian" in my hands, along with about a dozen other fans. After about 30 minutes, a roadie emerged and said, "Dude, he's gone. Left from another exit. He's already back at the hotel."

Oh well.
