A Monty Python Reunion (and a New Baby, Too)

Monty Python is having a 40th-anniversary reunion show tonight in New York. Their show launched on the BBC on October 5, 1969.

The NY Times has notes on tonight’s reunion, with a few good quotes:

As Terry Jones, one of the six-member troupe who created and acted in the show, said recently: “Time just seems to get quicker. You look in the mirror in the morning and you think, I’m already shaving again!'”

And from a wry John Cleese:

“I thought we had flogged this horse to death — way past death, in fact. We did it because Jones needed money. He’s about to have a baby, and we felt for the guy. Anyone entering on fatherhood at age 67 needs all the help he can get.”

About that baby: Terry Jones did indeed have just a daughter. The mother is his 26-year-old Swedish girlfriend, Anna Soderstrom. They’ve been dating since 2005.
