  1. Monty Python Really Planning That Reunion Show

    And Now For Something Completely Different

    The off again on again promises and denials that have gone along with the idea of a much awaited reunion of the prolific comedic troupe, show, and movie makers may have finally been answered. The Telegraph is reporting that the five remaining living members of Monty Python are planning a get together.

  2. Right in Our Wheelhouse: New British Citizenship Test Demands Knowledge of Monty Python

    The United Kingdom has updated it's citizenship test to better reflect a knowledge of the nation's history and culture, rather than practical skills in everyday life. Questions about whether you can use the Internet or know where you're water meter is, for example, have been replaced with trivia about everything from Margaret Thatcher and Stonehenge -- the U.K.'s two most famous rock formations --  to the work of British entertainers like The Beatles and Monty Python. We're really hoping that you can skip the whole exam in favor of doing a solo show of the entire Knights Who Say Ne bit, in which case we are soooooo in.

  3. John Cleese Responds to YouTube Comments (On YouTube) [Video]

    What It Says On the Tin

    This should be on television, they should make a movie out of it, it should be an app, it belongs everywhere: John Cleese responding to YouTube comments in a video posted by the Monty Python account. In this video, hear what elderberries taste like, Cleese's take on religion, and what, exactly, constitutes true stupidity. And yes, he does start this off by saying he's Michael Palin. That is not just you. (via http://laughingsquid.com/john-cleese-responds-to-monty-python-youtube-channel-comments/) Previously in Monty Python

  4. That Time Douglas Adams got Monty Python on Doctor Who

    It Goes Ding When There's Stuff

    Well, maybe he didn't get all of Monty Python on the show, but he did get John Cleese. City of Death was written by David Fisher, but heavily re-written by none other than then-script-editor Douglas Adams. When Adams learned that John Cleese would be filming in the same studio on the same day, he persuaded the actor to come in and cameo as a speaking part written for generic art gallery goers. Cleese agreed, on the requirement that his appearance on the show not be announced or publicized in any way, leaving it a bizarre non-sequitur that any Python fan would appreciate.

  5. Shut Up And Take My Money: Monty Python and Robin Williams Are Making Sci-Fi

    And Now For Something Completely Different

    Absolutely Anything, based on a script that Terry Jones has been developing with Gavin Scott for two decades, may actually see production this spring. It tells the story of a few aliens and one human and, according to Variety, all those aliens are going to be voiced by the remaining living members of Monty Python, in a group venture the likes of which hasn't been seen since 1998. Also Robin Williams.

  6. Ben Whishaw Is the New Q In the Next James Bond Movie

    And Now For Something Completely Different

    The next Bond film, Skyfall, will feature a new gadget man helping the iconic spy. Ben Whishaw, who currently appears in the BBC's The Hour, will be taking over the role of Q in the new movie, making him the youngest actor to do so and the first time Q has been younger than Bond himself. This will probably not, however, cramp Bond's style. (Because he is James Bond.)

  7. The Late Graham Chapman Will Narrate a Film About His Life

    And Now For Something Completely Different

    Fifteen different animation companies will come together to take on one respective chapter of Graham Chapman's fake autobiography, A Liar's Autobiography: Volume VI and turn it into a film. Chapman is a former member of Monty Python, and I say "former" only because he is no longer living. But before he died in 1989, he recorded himself reading part of his own book, so that is going to be used for the film's narration. And it only took someone over 20 years to think to do this.

  8. When the Doctor Visited Fawlty Towers [Video]

    It Goes Ding When There's Stuff

    Basil Fawlty might be rude to his guests and staff, but he's not going to just stand by when Cybermen take over his establishment. (Something that is probably Manuel's fault.) No need to fear -- the Doctor has this all under control. (YouTube)

    Fangasm

    So, this is going to happen: The BBC has announced the production of a "comic drama" called Holy Flying Circus, which will chronicle the controversy surrounding Monty Python's 1979 film Life of Brian. No, wait -- there's more. This story being told to us will incorporate animation and puppets. Monty Python. Animation. Puppets.

  10. We Will Watch John Cleese Do Anything If It Involves Silly Dancing [Video]

    The World Doesn't End Because the Doctor Dances

    John Cleese has been doing a series of "Road Rage" ads for the GPS system TomTom, and when you see this man reprising selections from "Ministry of Silly Walks" in dance form to Queen's "I Want to Break Free," there is just no way we can not share it. There are just too many things going absolutely right. And this is only one of six ads where we get to watch how John Cleese handles a traffic jam. (Flavorwire)
