WONDERFUL! IF THE DAMN THING HAD FINISHED PROPERLY!

It was lovely to see see Mr. Cleese regale us all with stories of his life, from boy to star, and a bit in between. He ventured into his childhood with his mother, his Pre, During, and Post Python years, and even talked of his personal sadness at the death of his friend and writing partner, Graham Chapman. All in all, it was a wonderful evening filled with hilarious anecdotes, and a comedy legend who, I'm sure, had too many stories to cram into two hours. But where were the questions?! We were promised a Q&A when purchasing our tickets but didn't get one! Both my date and myself were very disappointed that there was not even an apology for such an oversight, whatever the reason. If there had been some mention of something, I'm sure I would move on. Yet now I have a question unanswered, so perhaps I'll leave it with you. In your opinion, why do you think so many comedians of the 60's and 70's had such tormented personal lives, and what draws these types to comedy in the first place?
