    The five surviving members of the famed British cult comedy group – John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones, Michael Palin and Eric Idle – are preparing to make a comeback almost 45 years since their first TV shows together.

    "We're getting together and putting on a show – it's real," Jones confirmed to the the musical Spamalot (penned by Idle), was set to announce their comeback Thursday. But news was already circulating, with Idle tweeting Monday that fans should look out for a "big forthcoming news event." And The Sun newspaper splashed the news Tuesday with a front-page headline proclaiming "Monty Python Flies Again."

    The five members are still set to hold a press conference Thursday at the Playhouse Theatre in London (where Spamalot is playing). A rep would not confirm any further details.

    Only worth it if Graham Chapman's ashes make a guest appearance...

    I'm a huge Monty Python fan but I don't think it's a good idea. In the past whenever they did something without all five members contributing it really didn't work. I know John Cleese is really hurting for money after multiple divorces so that's probably the real reason why they're getting back together.

    I just sent a link to their "Organ Donor" skit to a friend who just showed me her new drivers license. I'll never be an organ donor because of it.

    Good for them. I look forward to it. They are all very creative, funny, productive and messed-up guys.

    Howard doesn't 'get' their comedy. Speaks volumes about Howards sense of humor.

    Love me some MPFC!

    and anyone wonders why Howard isn't funny? howard only wishes he could be as popular and still as funny as MPFC is 60 years later. its 20 years since the WNBC days and the only people asking to rerun Howard's shows...is Howard. Networks still compete to pay to rerun MPFC.

    I walked into a Sharper Image store on Madison Ave once, and John Cleese was in the store buying presents to bring home. he was entertaining the store and the customers. he was funny just standing there playing with the gadgets; 7 feet tall (well almost), thin as a rail, and oozing more funny just existing than Jerry Seinfeld produced during his whole active career.

    even if it sucks balls, it will be funnier than anything produced in the past 10 years.

    I think I remember Howard saying he doesn't like Monty Python. Figures, with the hundreds of shitty jewish "comedians". :facepalm: They should stick to making bagels.

    And now...................
