Pythons head for Arena

Have your say

The remaining members of Monty Python have confirmed they will perform together at London’s O2 Arena more than 30 years after their last stage performance.

The veteran comedy troupe – John Cleese, Michael Palin, Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam and Terry Jones – announced the news at a madcap launch. They promised the return of some of their most famous routines, including a likely performance of the dead parrot sketch. The show will take place on July 1.
