Python alum Cleese voices ads for Great TV Auction in Milwaukee

By Dru Sefton

The story of how Monty Python’s Flying Circus star John Cleese became a pitchman for Milwaukee Public Television’s Great TV Auction dates to 1987 and “has as many curves as the Monaco Grand Prix,” writes Milwaukee Journal Sentinel TV/radio columnist Duane Dudek. You can listen to Cleese’s two 60-second radio spots here. The auction runs April 26 through May 4 and is the largest pubcasting event of its kind in nation, raising more than $1 million annually.
