Monty Python Reunites For A Stage Show

All of the surviving members of legendary British comedy group Monty Python are set to reform for a stage show.

Terry Jones tells The BBC: "We're getting together and putting on a show - it's real. 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!"

The reunion is expected to be announced officially at a press conference being held in London on Thursday, with the conference set to be broadcast live on Sky News. Jones, John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam and Michael Palin are all due to appear at the event.

The last time the five remaining members of the iconic comedy group appeared together to perform their material was in 1998 at the Aspen Comedy Festival. The sixth member, Graham Chapman, died in 1989.
