Following on from the International comedy success of Eric Idle's Spamalot, reports are suggesting that the Monty Python team will be making a comeback.
Entitled Monty Python’s Personal Best, reports suggest that each surviving team member - Terry Jones, Eric Idle, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam and Michael Palin - will each be writing a new episode, based on previous favourite scenes from Monty Python's Flying Circus.
The Monty Python team will then combine in the final episode, to perform a tribute to Graham Chapman.
Monty Python’s Personal Best is being produced for an American television network first of all. Let's hope that British fans of the Python's unique brand of comedy, will get a chance to see this series on UK television sooner rather than later.
Monty Python's Flying Circus hit British TV screens in 1969 and the series lasted until 1974. This later became And Now For Something Completely Different.
The Monty Python comics went on to become famous in many different comedy arenas, including films - such as Life of Brian - and television. John Cleese is best known for Fawlty Towers, Terry Gilliam went on to make movies and Michael Palin went on to star in and produce travel programs and books for British television.
