British comedy veterans Monty Python are set to reunite for a new show in their first major collaboration in 30 years, member Terry Jones revealed on Tuesday.
“We’re getting together and putting on a show — it’s real,” 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!”
The BBC reported that the new collaboration — the first major project since the 1983 film “Monty Python’s The Meaning Of Life” — would come in the form of a theatre show.
Surviving Pythons John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Michael Palin and Jones — who are all in their seventies — are set to formally announce the new project at a press conference in London on Thursday.
