While Zack Morris has been a guest on Jimmy Fallon's show before, on last night's Tonight Show Fallon finally put together a nearly complete Saved by the Bell reunion with Zack (Mark-Paul Gosselaar), Kelly Kapowski (Tiffani-Amber Thiessen), A.C. Slater (Mario Lopez) Jessie Spano (Elizabeth Berkley), Mr. Belding (Dennis Haskins), and Fallon as a new kid who dreams of getting on Saturday Night Live. Check out the reunion above.
Sketch group The Kids in the Hall is reuniting for a live staged reading of the script for their 1996 cult movie Brain Candy. On Tuesday, March 11th, the group will take the stage at Toronto Sketchfest (tickets here), complete with accompaniment with Brain Candy's original composer Craig Northey from the band The Odds, and Chris Murphy and Gregory MacDonald of Sloan. All five members of Kids in the Hall will be present, and they will also be screening the movie's original ending.
Although it's gone on to be a cult hit, Brain Candy was a box office bomb and failed to impress critics when it was released in 1996, [...]
The State alums Michael Showalter, Kerri Kenny-Silver, and Michael Ian Black were last night's @midnight celebrity contestants, which quickly evolved into a nearly complete The State reunion (sans Todd Holoubek and Kevin Allison) full of sarcastic bitterness and contempt.

Tickets went on sale this morning, and sold so fast that the troupe has added four more shows. Tickets then went on sale for July 2-5, and those seem to be almost sold out as well. Organizers said the first show sold out in 43.5 seconds when they went on sale at 10 am GMT. The O2 Arena seats 20,000 people, and ticket prices ranged from £26.50 ($43) to £95 ($154).
One presumed reason for the reunion is due to a recent court loss by John Cleese, Eric [...]
The five living members of the extraordinarily influential British sketch troupe Monty Python are reuniting for a stage show. Python Terry Jones confirmed to the BBC that he, John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam and Michael Palin are getting together to put on a show. "It’s real,” Jones said. “I’m quite excited about it. I hope it makes us a lot of money. I hope to be able to pay off my mortgage!"
More details will be revealed a press conference in London on Thursday, which Idle has referred to in tweets as a "big forthcoming news event." The group hasn't performed on stage together in 15 years; [...]
