Monty Python earn $3m for final shows

Monty Python Monty Python are set to make $3.3 million each from their recent reunion. The legendary comedy troupe - consisting of John Cleese, Michael Palin, Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam and Terry Jones - will all earn a seven-figure payday for their 10 shows at London's The O2 arena, which have been billed as the group's last ever gigs together. A source told The Sun: ''Each will pocket at least $3.3 million. That's quite a tidy little sum for just 10 days of them performing material they could recite in their sleep.'' All 10 Monty Python Live (Mostly): One Down, Five To Go gigs have sold out, with some 20,000 fans attending each night, and the septuagenarian comics are set to earn even more money as they've sold lucrative UK TV rights for their final show on Sunday. The gig will also be broadcast in theaters around the world. The lavish production - which features state-of-the-art sets, expensive video skits and backing dancers - is thought to cost $7.7 million to stage. A portion of the profits will go to the estate of late Monty Python star Graham Chapman, who died in 1989 but continues to have a presence in the troupe's sketches.

    Morneau went 3 for 4 with a walk and four RBIs. He hit a solo homer in the sixth inning and added a two-run drive in the eighth, his first multihomer game this season and the 13th of his career. Morneau has hit safely in 10 straight games.

    Anti-euthanasia campaigners criticized the decision to show Smedley’s death. The former Bishop of Rochester, Michael Nazir-Ali, called the program “propaganda on one side.”
