The top 10 quotes from the man himself

Last weekend, Mandala Club welcomed one of the world's most highly regarded comedians, John Cleese, for a meet and greet session with our members. For those of you who missed out, we’ve rounded up 10 of John Cleese' most thought-provoking quotes worth immortalising on a fridge magnet:

  1. “The shortest distance between two people is a laugh”
  2. “When you laugh with someone else, there’s a moment of deep emotional connection with that person”
  3. “Some people can live with confusion, and it takes much longer to make their minds up. Some people, it makes them so uncomfortable they have to make up their mind straight away, which is why they will never be creative”
  4. “Interruption is a death to creativity”
  5. “I think that the supersensitivity of the woke fraternity is doing a very bad job for comedy”
  6. “Things go in and out of fashion, and people at the top never know, because they’re always trying to follow the last thing that was successful”
  7. “I think comedy is best when there is a level of intimacy”
  8. “The other secret to a happy marriage is that we didn’t have children. We had cats”
  9. “It would be much better if they accept it, the people at the top, that they have very little idea what they’re doing. They think they know what they’re doing, but they don’t”
  10. “I think most people are slightly uncomfortable with the thought of having moments of sadness or something like that at the same time as moments of humour”
