New documentary series 'John Cleese: Cancel Me' will see the star explore the world of cancel culture and its impact on society.
He will explore why a new ‘woke’ generation is trying to rewrite the rules on what can and can’t be said. He will talk to a variety of people, including some familiar faces who claim to have been ‘cancelled’ and others who have campaigned against comedians and programmes.
John Cleese said: "I’m delighted to have a chance to find out, on camera, about all the aspects of so-called Political Correctness. There’s so much I really don’t understand, like: how the impeccable idea of ‘Let’s all be kind to people’ has been developed in some cases ad absurdum...
He continued: "I want to bring the various reasonings right out in the open so that people can be clearer in their minds what they agree with, what they don’t agree with, and what they still can’t make their mind up about."
The series is coming soon to Channel 4.
