Neil Innes will visit Derby LIVE’s Guildhall Theatre on Friday. September 13, to perform a poignant, humorous and topical one-man show, spiced with anecdotes of his life and times in the worlds of media and show business.

Neil is best known for his collaborative work with Monty Python, The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band and The Rutles while his TV shows for BBC2, The Innes Book of Records have become cult classics.

Neil’s solo show will tickle the emotions with a potent mix of fine musicianship and enlightened lyricism, packed with sharp observations celebrating the absurdities of modern existence.

The show is in his own words, “flawless sincerity, powerful drama, award-winning comedy and a sweet ukulele marmalade, flesh out an entirely honest but otherwise unpretentious musical bouquet, with a robust hint of vanilla and a lingering aftertaste of red currants.

“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, priced at £15.50, are available from the Box Office on 01332 255800.
