THERE’LL be diabolical mayhem at the Court Theatre in Tring next week when the largest number of Bonzos still playing together anywhere on the surface of the earth unleash their Bonzo Dog classics on the audience.
Look forward to Hunting Tigers Out In India, I’m Bored, Big Shot, Trouser Press, The Sheik of Araby, Monster Mash, Can Blue Men Sing The Whites?, The Head Ballet and many more - as well as some new songs.
Robots, smoke, unsuitable medical technology, ancient theatrical props, the kitchen sink and the audience - yes, you get to join in - all combine to re-create the atmosphere of those formative years.
The musical missing link between The Goons and Monty Python, from 1967 to 1969 The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band featured as the house band on Do Not Adjust Your Set, a fore-runner of Monty Python, with Michael Palin, Eric Idle and Terry Jones, and a young David Jason.
Their humour was highly influential - Stephen Fry, Adrian Edmondson, Eddie Izzard, Chris Morris and Bill Bailey have all named the Bonzos as a formative influence.
The Court Theatre presents Three Bonzos and a Piano at the Court Theatre, Tring on Friday, June 10, 8pm.
