The remaining members of legendary comedy troupe Monty Python are set to reunite.
John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam, Michael Palin and Terry Jones will attend a press conference at The Palace Theatre in London on Thursday, where they are expected to announce their plans. Jones told the BBC:
"We're getting together and putting on a show - it's real. 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!"
It's 30 years since the Pythons' last film was released - The Meaning Of Life - while they last appeared together at the Aspen Comedy Festival in 1998. Graham Chapman, who took on the lead roles in Monty Python And The Holy Grail and Life Of Brian, died of cancer in 1989.
