The surviving members of Monthy Python are set to reunite for a stage show, with the official press conference being held later today. The group of septuagenarians have unsurprisingly caused quite a stir with the news and social media is subsequently buzzing.
Since Tuesday, when the news was first reported, people have taken to social networks to discuss their favourite Monty Python sketches. Using Cision Social Media, we’ve been able to produce the top five most mentioned. Think social media is wrong? Let us know in the comments below.
