Comedian and actor John Cleese wrote a witheringly funny reply to a 14-year-old fan once who asked him if such a thing as a John Cleese fan club existed. Have a read of what the once and forever Python said here.

Monty Python are about to undertake their second run of live shows at London's O2 and lifelong fan Matt Hyde was good enough to post the hilarious reply he received from Cleese when he sent the him a fan letter aged 14.
