John Cleese is charging fans £249 for insult-filled video messages, the Monty Python and Fawlty Towers star, 80, has become a huge hit on the video messaging site Cameo.
HE jokingly tells fans that they must stump up more money if they want him to record a nice message. Cleese says: “I can be sweet, loving and sympathetic if that’s what you really want, but I charge more for that because it’s so f****** boring.”
One delighted fan left a review on the website that said: “I have never been so insulted in my entire life! “Thanks John!”
Video-messaging is Cleese’s latest money-making scheme in the wake of a divorce from third wife Alyce Eichelberger that cost him an estimated £12 million.
The comic actor reported to still be worth £15 million, claims he has been trying to repair the financial damage for more than a decade.
‘Since my death I’ve received no honest work at all so I’ve been reduced to doing these shout outs,’ he said.
