Monty Python members
Let the silly walks commence! Monty Python is reuniting for the first time in 30 years, the BBC reports.
"We're getting together and putting on a show actually. It's real," Terry Jones told the BBC. "I'm quite excited about it. I hope it makes us a lot of money. I hope to be able to pay off my mortgage!"

Living members of the British comedy troupe John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam, Michael Palin and Jones will come together for a stage show, which will be announced officially at a press conference on Thursday in London, where the Monty Python-inspired musical Spamalot is currently running. The sixth member, Graham Chapman, died in 1989.
Monty Python first hit the scene with their surreal sketch comedy show Monty Python's Flying Circus, which ran from 1969-1974. Some of their most iconic and frequently quoted sketches include "The Minsitry of Silly Walks," "Dead Parrot," "The Lumberjack Song," "Nudge Nudge" and "Cheese Shop."
