John Cleese said he is not feeling nervous about performing Monty Python at the O2 Arena next year as he expects the show to be "like a party" - a celebration of the classic sketches between the performers and fans.
He said he is excited to be reunited with his co-stars on stage, safe in the knowledge their material is "pretty funny".
Speaking to Nina Nannar, he dismissed reports the troupe were reuniting simply for the money and labelled the Daily Mail writers who made the claims "w*****s".
The remaining members of Monty Python have announced four more shows after their reunion at London's O2 sold out in less than a minute.
The five remaining stars of the internationally acclaimed comedy troupe are to perform together in a live show at the O2 Arena in London.
