Monty Python announces reunion show in July

Updated:
LONDON -

The Monty Python gang is coming back for a reunion show in July.

The five surviving members said Thursday the London show is planned as a single event but that further engagements are possible.

The group had its first big success with the Monty Python's Flying Circus TV show, which ran from 1969 until 1974, winning fans around the world with its bizarre sketches. The group branched out into movies including "Life of Brian" and backed theatrical shows such as "Monty Python's Spamalot."

The five surviving members last performed together in 1998. The sixth member, Graham Chapman, died of cancer in 1989.
