Monty Python - Monty Python To Reunite On Stage After 30 Years - Report

The stars of Monty Python are to announce their long-awaited reunion plans at a press conference in London later this week (beg18Nov13).

John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin will attend the event on Thursday (21Nov13), when they will reportedly confirm plans to work together again for the first time in 30 years.

After the invitation to the press conference was sent out to the media, Jones revealed the cult comedy group will reform for a stage show.

He 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 British comedy troupe last worked together on 1983 film Monty Python's The Meaning of Life, which also starred late member Graham Chapman, who died from cancer in 1989.

Earlier this year (13), Cleese revealed plans for a get together in a new alien comedy movie directed by Jones had fallen through.

He said, "The truth is, I don't think any one of us knows what's going on. Terry rang us about 18 months ago and said, 'If we make this movie and I direct it, will you do a voice for it?' As far as I know, everyone said yes, and that's the last we heard about it."

However, the Fawlty Towers legend insists the friends still get on well, adding: "We only get together occasionally. It's fun when we do. We always say we laugh more when we are together than we really do any other time."
