For the first time in more than a decade, all surviving members of Monty Python will be performing together. Member Terry Jones confirmed the event to the BBC following a Sun report. "We're getting together and putting on a show—it's real," he says. "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." Jones will reunite with comedy partners John Cleese, Eric Idle, Michael Palin, and Terry Gilliam, all in their 70s; Graham Chapman died in 1989. The British comedy troupe will reconvene Thursday for a press conference in London. (Read more Monty Python stories.)
