Delving into the A-Z's of Soccer John Cleese Style

Here and now for the first time is your comprehensive guide to the great game of soccer (also known as football). Comedy legend John Cleese hosts this A-Z look at soccer's greatest kicks, goals, saves, bloopers, plays and penalties of all time, as well as soccer's influence on culture (including the famous Monty Python sketch, Philosophy Football ).

Featuring interviews with pop culture icons Dave Stewart, Dennis Hopper and Henry Kissinger, as well as soccer greats, including Pelé, Mia Hamm and Thierry Henry, The Art of Soccer is loaded with everything you could ever possibly want... and John Cleese.

John Cleese and Tom Konkle are two generations of sketch comedians cut from the same cloth. Cleese is legendary and Konkle is a rising star whose has drawn comparisons to Cleese along the way. Interestingly Konkle falls comfortably into the Michael Palin mode offering support and comedy to compliment Cleese's style rather than be too similar to it. The writing on the show is exceptional as are the interviews with a who's who of the football world. (soccer in America) The A-Z format for the sketches creates a wonderfully, surreal and silly flow and weaves together some very dissimilar and high -minded concepts about the game. Watch if you love football and watch if you want to see two funny, talented comedians working together with comic ease.

Though it would be very funny, but it was not Monty-ish. Great soccer. I would recommend it. Still love Cleese!

Deeply interesting to soccer fans and funny. Loved the sidekick foil to cleese. His facial expressions almost outdid Cleese, I thought.

Who cares what politicians and movie actors think of soccer. I was hoping to see more soccer highlights with John Cleese commenting but it was mostly interviews.
