Monty Python to reform for stage show

Comedy group Monty Python are set to reunite for a new stage show, reports BBC News.

John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin are expected to reveal more details at a press conference on Thursday.

"We’re getting together and putting on a show – it’s real," Terry Jones told the BBC.

"I’m quite excited about it. I hope it makes us a lot of money. I hope to be able to pay off my mortgage."

John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Michael Palin, and Terry Jones teamed up recently for Jones’ upcoming movie Absolutely Anything, but this new live show marks the first collaboration in three decades for all of the surviving members of Monty Python.

The last time the five remaining members of the iconic comedy group appeared together was in 1998 at the Aspen Comedy Festival, where they brought along, kicked over, and vacuumed up the ashes of Graham Chapman.
