Comedian John Cleese has revealed plans for a late career change – writing speeches for “brilliant” presidential hopeful Barack Obama.

The Monty Python star, who lives in California, believes his comic touches could be a crucial factor in getting Senator Obama to the White House.

Cleese let slip his political plans during an interview with the Western Daily Press newspaper about his beloved Bristol City Football Club.

The 68-year-old, who co-wrote ‘Fawlty Towers’ with Connie Booth, said: “I am due to come to Europe in November but I may be tied up until then because if Barack Obama gets the nomination I’m going to offer my services to him as a speechwriter because I think he is a brilliant man.”

Isn’t Mr. Obama’s campaign hilarious enough already?
