Idle Rules Out Monty Python Reunion

Funnyman ERIC IDLE has ruled out a MONTY PYTHON reunion after meeting with his comedy pals over dinner in London.

Idle has been the one member of the British comedy troupe fighting for a Python comeback in recent years, but now accepts such an idea is unlikely.

He says, "We're all over 60 and comedy is really a young man's game and it's sort of about what you had to say when you were fresh and young.

"I'm perfectly happy to get drunk with the rest of them. I was just in London and we had a really spectacular dinner, but I think it really should go no further than that. We've earned that."
