Nice to see my personal comedic heroes get the accolades they deserve, what I wouldn't give to get a front row seat to this ceremony.

The five surviving members of Britain's famed Monty Python comedy troupe are to reunite for a 40th anniversary bash in New York, where they will be presented with a BAFTA Special Award, the academy said Wednesday. The Monty Python team, which shot to international fame in the late 1960s and 1970s with their surreal and satirical humour, will receive the award on October 15, said the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.
