John Cleese

Whitney Cummings is seeking psychological treatment from John Cleese. The Monty Python alum, whose rare TV appearances have been limited to episodes of Will & Grace and Third Rock From the Sun, will guest star in a February episode of NBC's Whitney as a couples therapist.

When Whitney and Alex (Chris D'Elia) begin feeling disconnected in their relationship, Roxanne (Rhea Seahorn) suggests they visit a therapist, Dr. Grant, for some advice.

Cleese plays Dr. Grant, who assigns the couple some at-home exercises designed to improve communication and intimacy. Not surprisingly, this results in some decidedly awkward moments.    

Would we expect anything less from Mr. Cleese?
