Millions of fans rejoiced when news broke that legendary comedy group Monty Python would reunite for the first time in 30 years, BBC reports. Instead of another film or a BBC TV spot, they’ll be performing in a stage show.
“I’m quite excited about it,” member Terry Jones said to BBC. “I hope it makes us a lot of money. I hope to be able to pay off my mortgage!”
Although the reunion isn’t expected to be announced officially until Thursday, it’s being reported that all five surviving members will perform together. Graham Chapman, the sixth member, passed away in 1989 from tonsil cancer and secondary spinal cancer
The group first became known, and subsequently beloved, for their hilarious antics on the BBC show “Monty Python’s Flying Circus,” which premiered back in 1969. All of the members have enjoyed success in their solo careers, but the reunion of these comedic geniuses promises to be something special.
