It's NOT a dead parrot! Monty Python stars to reform 30 years after they last worked together

The cult comedy group Monty Python are to re-form officially, three decades after they last worked together.
The five surviving members John Cleese, 74, Terry Gilliam, 72, Terry Jones, 71, Eric Idle, 70, and Michael Palin, 70, will appear in the show, details of which have not yet been released.



This morning Terry Jones confirmed rumours the iconic team behind cult comedies such as their dead parrot sketch was getting back together, saying: 'We're getting together and putting on a show - it's real.'

This show was years a. of its time when it was shown. Used to love watching them and my favourite if I was down was the song, Always Looking on the bright side of life

Years ago, my wife was in a really stinking mood so I decided we would go for a drink in a local pub. I put this song on the juke box and she just had to laugh when she heard it.
Brilliant

Cult? CULT? These men(and Carol) transformed comedy. INNOVATORS not cult. Sure there was great funny stuff like the Argument sketch BUT it was loaded with political commentary as well. Dennis Moore is about redistribution of wealth.

That will do it! Hahaha!
How can you not laugh or at least smile when you hear that song.
My husband introduced me the the wider world of Monty Python when we started dating too. I had only seen the quest for the holy grail at that point, which is also hilarious. I am going to enjoy the clips from everyone today immensely. Being American I sadly missed out on most of their short sketch comedy.

Got some great memories when watching Monty Python on TV, with my dad when I was a kid in the seventies....

But my favourite line of all time from Monty Python, is.....

One day son, all this will be yours!

What? The curtains?

Whatever happened to Carol? John Cleese went on to raising lemurs, Eric Idle went on to do travel shows….Hmmm?

For die hard fans check out Yellowbeard. It's Monty Python meets Cheech and Chong meets Mel Brooks. Brooks didn't direct it but half of the cast are his regulars. Funny movie.
