“It’s a show for the out of touch. All the dinosaurs who are out of touch”, he said on Free Speech Nation.

“You can be either voluntarily out of touch, or out of touch without knowing it.

“It’s for those people.”

The comedy legend then gave Doyle an insight into how he pictured the show before it went to air, and how he brought his ideas to life.

“I wanted the setting to be like a strange gentleman’s club. It was extraordinary. I wanted it to be like the Star Wars bar”, he said.

“I wanted to create something that looked different, it would make people think, ‘oh, what’s that about?”

Doyle discussed the filming process, telling Cleese he found it “fun and interesting” to film.

Speaking before on the show, he promised the show will be “like John himself, far from predictable”.

Cleese has appeared on the People’s Channel on multiple occasions in the past, speaking to the likes of Michelle Dewberry, Andrew Doyle and Camilla Tominey.

Revealed on Andrew Doyle’s Free Speech Nation, Cleese spoke to a live studio audience about what we can all expect from the only thing worth watching on Sunday evenings to come.
