The Monty Python gang want to work with 'South Park'.
Terry Jones is reuniting with his old comedy collaborators John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Michael Palin and Eric Idle for the 'Monty Python Live (Mostly)' show, and he claims the controversial American animation is the modern-day equivalent of their iconic British sketch show, 'Monty Python's Flying Circus'.
The 71-year-old star told The Sun newspaper: ''It's so successful and brilliant. It makes me laugh. We'd like to do something with them but I don't know yet because it's early days for the Python reunion. Besides, I'm just getting used to being in my 70s.''
Terry credits 'South Park' creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker - who have admitted the show's style of animation is inspired by the paper cut-out cartoons made by Terry Gilliam for 'Monty Python's Flying Circus' and have cited the group's work as a major inspiration - for making the Pythons' reunion happen in the first place.
He explained: ''They sparked it off when they said they'd like to do a show with us - they were big followers of Monty Python. That sowed the seed of the Python reunion.''
The comedian tied the knot with belly dancer Anna Soderstrom, who is 41 years his junior, in a secret wedding ceremony last year, just months after divorcing his wife of 42 years, Alison Telfer.
However, Terry insists he will be giving Alison half of all proceeds he makes from the live shows next July.
He said: ''It's not an official thing or any form of settlement. But I feel I'll be happy to give her half the proceeds from the show. We still talk on the phone and she knows about the reunion.
''I split 50/50 with my ex-wife everything I did before the divorce - I incorporate anything Python into that.''
