Monty Python reunion to be announced at London press conference

The surviving Monty Python members are set to take part in a press conference later this week.

The comedians will gather together on November 21 at London's Palace Theatre to speak to the press, and it is rumoured that they will be announcing a reunion project of some description. "John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin invite you to join them," quotes the Hollywood Reporter from the press release, going on to write that the announcement has since sparked off suggestions of a reunion. The press conference will air live on Sky News.

BBC News reports that the project will be a stage show, quoting Terry Jones as saying: "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!"

The Sun appears the confirm that the troupe will be reuniting after 30 years. The 1983 film The Meaning of Life was the final project from all six original members of the comedy team, before Graham Chapman passed away in 1989. It followed their television show Monty Python's Flying Circus and the films Monty Python And The Holy Grail in 1975, Monty Python's Life of Brian in 1979 and Monty Python's Meaning Of Life in 1983.
