John Cleese: On Creativity, 2nd November

John Cleese

Get Tickets

The comedy legend shows us how to exercise our imaginations and be more creative in an online talk on his new book, Creativity: A Short and Cheerful Guide.

Creativity: some claim we’re born with it, while others – such as John Cleese – know first-hand that it is a skill that we can all acquire.

Drawing on his lifelong experience as a writer, Cleese has advice for us all on how we can fire up our imaginations – and what to do if we think we’ve hit a brick wall.

By explaining how our minds work as we search for inspiration, he shows us that we can be better at coming up with the kernel of an idea, refining it, and knowing that it is worth pursuing.

Learn the skills we need to be more creative from a master in an evening of practical advice – and inevitable humour.

Every ticket includes a copy of John Cleese’s new book, Creativity: A Short and Cheerful Guide (RRP £9.99). The books are sent out via post (postage is included in the price). You should receive your copy of the book in the week after the event.

This event is a partnership between Southbank Centre and Penguin Live.
