New Monty Python show to be 'a party with the fans'

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".
