In a bit of news that should set geek pulses racing and the Holy Grail quotes flying, Monty Python’s Flying Circus will reunite at an event in Manhattan  ob October 14, 2009. According to the New York Times:

All six — yes, six — members of that influential British comedy troupe… will come together in New York in the fall for an event to mark the group’s 40th anniversary and to promote a documentary…  In a news release, the groups said that the Monty Python founders John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin and, somehow, Graham Chapman (who died in 1989) would be present for a screening of the documentary “Monty Python: Almost the Truth (The Lawyer’s Cut)”…


The documentary, according to the article, will debut in a six-hour version on IFC on October 18. I’m cancelling any other plans I may have made for that day…
