The Seventh Python
Director Burt Kearns and Producer Brett Hudson will be in attendance!
You may remember Brett Hudson from the 70s pop group, The Hudson Brothers, who also were the stars of the 1974-75 Saturday morning show, "The Razzle Dazzle Show" which was on CBS.
A nonfiction musical feature film based on the life, work and unplanned career of musical satirist Neil Innes. "The Seventh Python" traces one man’s winding path of whimsy as he flirts with destiny at the edge of fame with incredibly influential and unusually lasting work that keeps one foot each planted in the worlds of comedy and rock ‘n’ roll. From the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band to Monty Python's Flying Circus and The Rutles, to his Ego Warrior campaign and his insistence on wearing a plastic duck on his head, Neil Innes has proven to be the greatest musical comedy satirist of the past fifty years. Yes, Neil Innes wears a duck on his head and he refuses to be famous. And it is his stubborn, brave resistance to celebrity culture and consumerism that is at the heart of this film that one early reviewer has called “touching, hilarious and inventive!”
Featuring John Cleese, Eric Idle, Michael Palin, Terry Jones, Matt Groening, Emo Philips, and Aimee Mann.
