Legendary comedian John Cleese (Monty Python’s Flying Circus) performed his ‘Why There’s No Hope” show at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa April 8. Dylan Black (Anthony Barton), a radio announcer on radio station Boom 97.7 was lucky enough to host the evening, which included a 40-minute question and answer period. Mr. Cleese was extremely gracious on and off stage, according to Black. Black, who keeps in touch with his hometown of Vankleek Hill by sharing tidbits like this with The Review from time to time, remarked the experience was a thrill for him.
