The pythons are back!
The stars of the iconic British comedy show Monty Python are set to reunite for a one-off show in London.
At a press conference on Thursday at London's Playhouse Theatre, the comedy legends John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin [founding member Graham Chapman died in 1989] put on a comic performance as they announced the details of their much anticipated show at London's O2 Arena – their first in over three decades.

No joke: Monty Python are reuniting!
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 BBC early Tuesday. "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!"
