FAWLTY TOWERS legend John Cleese was forced to scrap a performance at the world's biggest comedy festival this week (beg20Jul09) due to ill health.
The British star had been due to appear at the Just For Laughs festival in Montreal, Canada but cancelled on Wednesday (22Jul09) so he could undergo treatment for inflammation of the prostate gland.
Organisers are now trying to rearrange the 69-year-old's show for Sunday (26Jul09).
The event's chief executive Bruce Hills says, "This is the first time this has happened in 25 years. This is something John Cleese has worked on for four months."
Cleese has taken to his personal Twitter.com page to assure fans he is recovering well after his treatment. He writes, "Feeling a bit better. May be strong enough to poke (my friend) Garry in the eye with a plastic fork, which is a sign that my strength is coming back..."
