British comedy icon John Cleese will kick off his international tour for his new stand-up show with a one-night performance in Singapore on 8 January 2022.

The live comedy act titled "Why There Is No Hope" will be staged at The Star Performing Arts Centre.

The Monty Python star will riff about issues including woke culture, divorce, and comedy. Promoter Live Nation said the performance would be an intimate show that's part talk and part stand-up comedy, with the addition of a question-and-answer session.
