Cleese Cancels Comedy Slot

FAWLTY TOWERS legend JOHN CLEESE was forced to scrap a performance at the world's biggest comedy festival this week (beg20Jul09) due to ill health.
The British star had been due to appear at the Just For Laughs festival in Montreal, Canada but cancelled on Wednesday (22Jul09) so he could undergo treatment for inflammation of the prostate gland.
