‘The Flipside: Neil Innes Night’ celebrates Monty Python collaborator and comedian at BFI Southbank

Posted at 12:30 pm, September 6, 2011 in Arts & Entertainment

RutlandIt’s not only sweet to be an idiot, it’s rewarding too: writer, songsmith, raconteur and urban spaceman Neil Innes has made a 5-decade career out of acting like a berk. This Thursday (from 8.30pm), BFI pays tribute with an entire night dedicated to the former Python collaborator, Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band frontman and occasional Rutle, featuring a veritable panoply of his finest moments, plus plenty of rare material mined from BFI vaults. Innes himself is on hand to put everything into context – but don’t expect any of it to make an enormous amount of sense.
