Cocktails with Cleese

Comedy legend John Cleese joined 774 ABC presenter Jon Faine at an evening event to talk about the state of the media, those tabloids, Cleese's autobiography and his belief that the world is falling apart. Due to the comedian's desire to speak freely, the event was subject to Chatham House rules, but we've put together a sample of the exchange between 'The Two Johnnies'.
