A fines de la década de los 60 co-fundó Monty Python, el grupo de comediantes responsable del mítico en influyente programa de televisión Monty Python's Flying Circus. Junto a sus compañeros Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin y Graham Chapman, Cleese realizó películas como Los caballeros de la mesa cuadrada y sus locos seguidores (1975), La vida de Brian (1979) o El sentido de la vida (1983).

A mediados de la década de 1970, co-escribió con su primera esposa Connie Booth la comedia de situación Fawlty Towers, y la protagonizó como Basil Fawlty. Cleese recibió por ella el premio BAFTA de 1980 al mejor actor de comedia, y en el año 2000 la serie encabezó la lista del British Film Institute de los 100 mejores programas de televisión británicos. En una encuesta de Channel 4 de 2001, Basil Fawlty ocupó el segundo lugar en la lista de los 100 mejores personajes de televisión.

In the mid-1970s, Cleese and first wife Connie Booth co-wrote the sitcom Fawlty Towers, and he starred in it as Basil Fawlty. The series resulted in Cleese's receiving the 1980 BAFTA for Best Entertainment Performance, and in 2000 the show topped the British Film Institute's list of the 100 Greatest British Television Programmes. In a 2001 Channel 4 poll, Basil Fawlty was ranked second on its list of the 100 Greatest TV Characters.
