celebritiesJohn Cleese (84 years old) made a strange confession. The “Fawlty Towers” and “Monty Python” star says a fan died laughing too hard during a movie. “We killed a man,” Cleese said in an interview.
The 1988 film “A Fish Called Wanda” was the cause of death of a man in Denmark. John Cleese starred in the film opposite Kevin Kline and Jamie Lee Curtis. “Kevin and I killed a man,” Cleese explains. “He was a dentist, and he had a big smile. A famous smile, very popular. Everyone in his village knew him.”
“The guy went to see A Fish Called Wanda, and he started laughing two minutes later and never stopped. He had a heart attack, so they carried him dead. He also says that many fans have shared touching stories with him over the years about the comfort that a sense of humor can provide. “I realized about ten years ago that making people laugh is about more than just making them laugh.” “When you go to Comicon or any other fair and people come up to you and say, ‘Thank you for making me laugh all these years,’ you cry.”
Cleese also adds: “Tom Stoppard, the great playwright, once said something very beautiful: ‘The shortest distance between two people is a laugh.’ And he’s right.”
