Jonathan Hansler was John Cleese's official Basil Fawlty at Edinburgh 2019 and co writer of the hit show about dead famous comedians "Goodbye The Afterlife Of Cook and Moore"
After viewing Peter Cook and John Cleese in Peter's sketch Interesting Facts he fell about laughing and realised this is what he wanted to do.
Many years on 7 years dry due to a tough abusive childhood and hiding my shit behind booze and drugs he is still doing it,but far more focused,centred and on it,than he ever was.
In 2019 he was John Cleeses Basil Fawlty at the Edinburgh Festival, while their play Goodbye in which he would normally play Peter Cook was on to standing ovations and full houses at the famous Dingwalls in London.
Hows that for life imitating art?
This year he is working with Clive Greenwood Kev Orkian,Yasser Kayani,Bill Dare,and the comedy producers course at NFTS with their radio sitcom version of their play Goodbye
He has been a Hackney Empire NATY finalist twice
Also an actor with 89 IMDb credits including Eastenders and The Crown.
