NEIL INNES: A PEOPLE'S GUIDE TO WORLD DOMINATION CROSSES THE POND





“I've suffered for my music,” he tells America. “Now it's your turn.”


Neil Innes will be performing 15 dates across the States this April and May.

He is available for interviews in advance of the show, please call Anne Leighton at 718-881-8183 orAnne@AnneLeighton.com .


Neil's upcoming album, INNES OWN WORLD -The Best Bits will be available at the start on the tour. It features a selection of bits from his UK radio shows studded with 8 fabulous songs - a few new ones.

For five decades, Neil Innes made us laugh and sing along. One of the funniest men to hit the charts, he wrote songs like “Camelot” (“Living here in Camelot/We eat ham and jam and Spam a lot”) and “Sir Robin's Song” (“When trouble reared it's ugly head/He bravely turned his tail and fled”) from Monty Python and the Holy Grail; “Cheese and Onions” from The Rutles; the lone hit for the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band, “I'm The Urban Space Man”; and his theme song, “How Sweet to be An Idiot.”

Now you can discover how sweet it is to be an idiot by shelling out some cash to see Innes as his one man show A People's Guide to World Domination crosses the Atlantic and lands, waterlogged, in America. In a performance that has been called “A wonderfully wayward evening,” “the hottest ticket in town,” and “you're not wearing those trousers, are you?” Innes lampoons the human condition, lambastes bankers and other latter day clowns, and doesn't leave a dry seat in the house.

Called the seventh member of Monty Python's Flying Circus, Neil Innes has made people laugh and sing since breaking through with the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band, fresh out of college in the mid-'60s. A talented artist, musician, and actor/raconteur, he fell in with Monty Python, and later, along with former Python Eric Idle, put together The Rutles, the legend that would last a lunch-time. His BBC Television Show The Innes Book of Records has become much watched on YouTube. He also was involved with hundreds of episodes of children's shows, including the long running BBC favorite Raggy Doll.
While Neil says, “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,” he will continue to perform to small but beautifully formed audiences around the world, and one by one, raise an international army of 'EGO WARRIORS', sworn to defend self-esteem wherever it may be. This is his life's work.
