Monty Python members
Let the silly walks commence! Monty Python is reuniting for the first time in 30 years, the BBC reports.
John Cleese, Life of Brian
Since Monty Python went their separate ways in the mid-1980s, founding member John Cleese has regularly garnered guffaws in everything from A Fish Called Wanda to Will & Grace. But no matter what projects the actor and comic takes on, he will forever be linked to Python's Graham Chapman, Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones and Michael Palin. For the DVD release of Life of Brian: The Immaculate Edition, the comedy troupe's 1979 farce about a man who spends his life being confused with the messiah, TVGuide.com spoke with the British funnyman and got an idea of why the Python legacy is so enduring.
