Legendary Comedian Persuades Others About the Afterlife

In an interview with AARP, comedian John Cleese was asked: What do you think is the meaning of life? He replied:

I believe that there’s an afterlife, although I can’t explain it. I think the evidence is too strong that there’s something going on there that contemporary science knows nothing about. If I have anything useful to do, apart from making people laugh now and then, it’s to persuade people that this stuff ought to be looked at – without making great assumptions about what it means or how it happens.


Hugh Delehanty, “Q&A John Cleese,” AARP Bulletin (10-14-19), p. 40
