Monty Python and Fawlty Towers star John Cleese is to receive the Rose d’Or Lifetime Achievement award in Berlin.
The honour recognises those who have made an outstanding contribution to broadcast entertainment throughout their careers.
The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) said “no one is more deserving” of the award than Cleese.
The Rose d’Or awards go to the best online, radio and TV shows from the previous year.
Cleese, who also wrote for Monty Python and Fawlty Towers, joked: “I am delighted by this chance to annoy Terry Gilliam and I’m also very humbled by the offer of an all-expenses-paid holiday in Berlin.”
