One, two, five. The British comedy group Monty Python is reuniting, member Terry Jones has confirmed. In an interview with the BBC, Jones said, "We're getting together and putting on a show—it's real. I hope to be able to pay off my mortgage!" Fellow member Eric Idle alluded on Twitter to a coming announcement about the reunion, which is expected at a news conference in London Thursday. The comedy group was behind hits like Life of Brian, Holy Grail and the TV show Monty Python’s Flying Circus. The five surviving members last performed together in 1998.
