Fawlty Towers - Saturday, January 5 at 10:00 PM

Monty Python alum John Cleese joins our British Comedy Block this month with his classic sitcom, Fawlty Towers. Cleese stars as cantankerous hotel owner Basil Fawlty, whose interactions with staff, guests and his wife will make you wonder if he isn't in the wrong line of work. Although (very) short-lived, the series was ranked #1 on a list compiled by the British Film Institute of the 100 Greatest British Television Programs.
