Monty Python reunite for self-promotional extravaganza
The surviving members of Monty Python are set to reunite for a stage show featuring live performances of some of their best interviews. The Pythons, who stopped being funny in 1979, have spent the last 35 years making documentaries about themselves, and are now set to recreate some of those classic interviews for a brand new audience.
Fans can look forward to John Cleese banging on about The Meaning of Life being mediocre, Eric Idle's memories of touring in the 70s and a joke about Graham Chapman being dead. There will also be special appearances from a cavalcade of happening new comics, sycophantically telling everyone how Monty Python completely revolutionised comedy for ever, interspersed with Terry Jones explaining that actually they just pinched everything from Peter Cook and Spike Milligan.
