The Rolling Stones stars Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts have filmed a skit to promote the Monty Python comedy troupe's live comeback.

In the sketch, posted on YouTube Jagger jokes that the comedians, planning for a string of London reunion dates, may be past their prime.

He asks bandmate Watts, "Monty Python? Are they still going? Who wants to see that again? They're a bunch of wrinkly old men trying to relive their youth and make a load of money."

The joke is a reference to criticism aimed at the Stones, who are still touring in their 70s.

Meanwhile, the five surviving members of the British comedy troupe - John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin - have revealed that astrophysicists Stephen Hawking and Brian Cox will feature in filmed skits and comedian David Walliams will conduct red carpet interviews at their final show on July 20.
