UK satirist Neil Innes of Monty Python, Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band, Rutles brings Short Stories and Tall Songs to the Iron Horse, Wed. 5/11 at 7PM

What some people say:

A wry, poignant, humorous and topical one-man show, spiced with anecdotes of Neil’s life and times in the worlds of media and show business.  Neil Innes is best known for his collaborative work with Monty Python, the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band and the Rutles while his TV shows for BBC 2, 'The Innes Book of Records' have become cult classics. Neil’s solo shows tickle the emotions with a potent mix of fine musicianship and enlightened lyricism, packed with sharp observations celebrating the absurdities of modern existence.

What Neil says:

“Flawless sincerity, powerful drama, award-winning comedy and a sweet ukelele marmalade, flesh out an entirely honest but otherwise unpretentious musical bouquet, with a robust hint of vanilla and a lingering aftertaste of red currants. Good with children and animals.”

“If I could describe what it is I do on stage in a sentence or two, or even a cleverly constructed paragraph, then there would be absolutely no need for me to go on stage and do it.”
Tickets for Neil Innes on Wednesday, May 11th 7PM at the Iron Horse in Northampton are $17.50 at Northampton Box Office, 413-586-8686 and online at
