Grand Finale Lunch: Incorrigible creativity

About Ben Elton with a special appearance by John Cleese (via video)

ASFA is thrilled to present a very special Grand Finale Lunch, Incorrigible Creativity, featuring international champions of comedy, John Cleese (via video) together with Ben Elton. In their distinctive styles with irreverent wit, they’ll explore the inexplicable nature and wonder of creativity, in a stunning close to the 2017 ASFA Conference.

John Cleese is best known for Monty Python’s Flying Circus, Fawlty Towers, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Monty Python’s Life of Brian, and A Fish Called Wanda. However you might not know that he was also co-founder, with Sir Antony Jay, of Video Arts, a management and sales training video company and also co-authored, with eminent psychiatrist Dr Robin Skynner, two bestselling books Families And How To Survive Them, and Life And How To Survive It. He is also a Provost’s Visiting Professor at Cornell University. Turning his focus from comedy and drawing on his fascination with psychology, Cleese will share his thoughts on the value of creativity. Adamant that it is not in our genes, he’ll show us that creativity can only be developed by operating in the right environment, both personally and in the workplace.

Ben Elton is a hugely successful stand-up comedian, scriptwriter, playwright, librettist and novelist. His sitcoms include The Young Ones, Happy Families, Thin Blue Line and Blackadder. He has written 14 novels, five of which were number 1 sellers. In 2000, he wrote and directed the romantic comedy Maybe Baby and collaborated with Andrew Lloyd Webber on the musical The Beautiful Game. His second musical is multi award winning We Will Rock You, which is still running in London, and he recently collaborated with Andrew Lloyd Webber on the Phantom of the Opera sequel Love Never Dies. Being the first day of summer, it might be timely to mention that Ben’s latest writing/directing creative enterprise is an Australian ensemble romantic comedy film entitled Three Summers.

Jane Hutcheon will host the lunch. Jane is highly regarded for her weekly ABC-TV interview show One Plus One. She has interviewed celebrities, artists and leaders including Alan Rickman, Jane Goodall, Geoffrey Rush, Gillian Triggs, Eddie Izzard, Pamela Stephenson Connolly and Al Gore. A former foreign correspondent, she has covered wars, disasters and breaking news during her postings to China, the Middle East and Europe. Born in Hong Kong, Jane is the author of China, Baby, Love and From Rice to Riches.
