Surviving Members of Monty Python Will Reunite for a New Stage Show


After a tweet by Eric Idle on Monday, the internet lost it’s mind with speculation about a reunion of classic comedy troupe Monty Python.



They were rewarded yesterday as Terry Jones went on BBC to confirm that the five surviving members, Micheal Palin, John Cleese, MN native Terry Gilliam, and Eric Idle will reunite for a stage show.

He told the BBC;

“We’re getting together and putting on a show — it’s real,” Jones said. “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!”


Variety, the Hollywood industry tabloid, reports that a news conference will be held at the Playhouse Theater in London’s West End, which is the home for Spamalot, Idle’s musical based on the film “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.”

After an amicable break-up in the early 80’s, the surviving members, now all in their 70’s, have gone on to success in various solo and collaborative projects, from acting in TV roles, movies, producing, writing and web-based fame. The sixth original member, Graham Chapman died of cancer in 1989. It will be the first time all the members will be together since the Aspen Comedy Festival in 1998.
