Fawlty Towers is a British sitcom made by the BBC in the 1970s. It is set in a hotel in Torquay and was written by John Cleese – one of the Monty Pythons – who plays the charachter of Basil, the hotel owner. Although it is more than thirty years old, Fawlty Towers became so popular and has influenced so many other shows that has become a classic. This is why they mentioned it in the book and I thought it would be a good idea to link here part of an episode for you to watch.
Watch it and tell me whether you find it funny. You can tell me in class or post a comment!
