(Newser) – For the first time in more than a decade, all surviving members of Monty Python will be performing together. Member Terry Jones confirmed the event to the BBC following a Sun report. "We're getting together and putting on a show—it's real," he says. "I'm quite excited about it. I hope it makes us a lot of money. I hope to be able to pay off my mortgage." Jones will reunite with comedy partners John Cleese, Eric Idle, Michael Palin, and Terry Gilliam, all in their 70s; Graham Chapman died in 1989. The British comedy troupe will reconvene Thursday for a press conference in London.

The good news is that they were able to vacuum up most of Graham Chapman's ashes from the urn accident they had in their last filmed special.
