Two British icons of comedy and music are set to perform in Israel in the coming months, defying boycotters who hope to isolate the Jewish state.

Monty Python co-founder John Cleese, 79, announced a Tel Aviv date in September as part of his ‘Last Time to See Me Before I Die’ tour, while Welsh music legend Sir Tom Jones, 78, has said he will perform in Tel Aviv in July.

Fawlty Towers star Cleese, who declined a peerage for political reasons, said he was touring for reasons of “alimony” having had three divorces, the most recent costing him £12 million. His fourth wife, Jennifer, is 31 years his junior.

He will appear on 1 September at the Charles Bronfman Auditorium, in a show billed as stand-up interspersed with clips from Monty Python and Fawlty Towers, while Jones is set to perform in the same city on 3 July.
