    LONDON (AP) — Big news in the comedy world: Monty Python is set to reunite for a stage show.

    Python member Terry Jones told the BBC on Tuesday he's excited the group is reuniting. He said he hopes to make enough money to pay off his mortgage.

    The group had its first big success with the Monty Python's Flying Circus TV show, which ran from 1969 until 1974, winning fans around the world with its bizarre sketches. The group branched out into movies including "Life of Brian" and backed theatrical shows such as "Monty Python's Spamalot."

    The five surviving members last performed together in 1998. The sixth member, Graham Chapman, died of cancer in 1989.

    I hate reunions. They're just trying to squeeze more money out of fans for minimal effort.

    They've given me so much enjoyment over my lifetime I feel they deserve some of my money. To see them in person I will go anywhere and pay anything.

    Yeah the Terrys just said it was shit, Michael Palin implied it was shit and Cleese just liked the money too much to be mean.

    I personally think Comedy Acts shouldn't come back together, especially stuff like Python. Who wants to see old men act silly?

    I saw a guy doing these really odd high leg kicks at the park yesterday and the first thing I thought of was The Ministry of Silly Walks. :)

    ^ I read somewhere the one cast member that was a pain in the ass about doing anything Python had another divorce and is needing the money now. Suddenly he's not opposed to doing Python stuff now. Fuck him. I have my box set. No need to shell out anymore than that.

    I just think its kind of shitty to say I don't want to do what the fans would like until Im in need of money. People are such sheep sometimes.
