dacarr writes "The five remaining members of Monty Python will be performing in the O2 Arena, and their last show as a comedy troupe will be simulcast across hundreds of theaters in the UK, and roughly 1,500 more across the world, according to the Guardian. Michael Palin says this is really going to be the last time before the Pythons cease to be. Well, at least, before Monty Python, as a comedy troupe, runs down the curtain and joins the bleedin' choir invisible."

    The only absent member will be Graham Chapman, who died in 1989 at the age of 48.

    They could dig him up and have him fall out of cupboards, and other visual gags.
    The audition would be a mere formality.

    Don't worry, they're only splitting up to get their heads together. They'll reform in a fortnight as Heads Together, then become Dead Together, then Dead Gear, then Dead Donkeys, Lead Donkeys, and the inevitable split up. After another ten days, they'll reform again as Sole Marnier, then Dead Sole, Rock Cod, Turbot, Haddock, White Baith, the Plaices, Fish, Bream, Mackerel, Salmon, Poached Salmon, Poached Salmon In A White Wine Sauce, Salmon Marnier, and Helen Shapiro.
