Actor-comedian Chris Kattan has had a great deal of comedy success on the stage, in films and on the small screen. The list of his most memorable Saturday Night Live characters stretches over nearly a decade on the show, including such favorites as Mr. Peppers, Mango, Azrael Abyss, Kyle DeMarco and Suel Forrester. His stint as half of the head-bobbing Butabi brothers, alongside fellow cast member Will Ferrell, saw him make the leap onto the big screen in 1998's A Night at the Roxbury. Also a former member of the world-renowned improv/sketch troupe the Groundlings, Kattan has continued to perform on stage, including headlining stand-up comedy events at clubs and theaters around the country.

Fantastic show. I'm so glad I went! Mr. Innes is not only a brilliant and clever songwriter. He's also a terrific performer. At Cobb's he gave a nearly three-hour show (including "interval") and moved deftly between poignant, present-day tunes and past Rutles and Python gems. His between-song patter was wicked and astute and far superior to what often passes for "comedy" on the club circuit these days. The crowd wasn't huge, but there was a lot of love in the room.
Neil Innes is a British writer and performer of comic songs, best known for playing in the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band and later The Rutles. Innes was born in Essex, and studied at the Norwich School of Fine Art, from which he was thrown out around 1963, allegedly for "spending all day playing music, instead of making things". In the period 1962 to 1965, Innes and several other art school students started a band which was originally named The Bonzo Dog Dada Band after their interest in the art movement Dada, but which was soon renamed the Bonzo Dog Band. Innes, with Vivian Stanshall, wrote most of the band's songs, including "I'm the Urban Spaceman", their sole hit, and "Death Cab for Cutie" (which inspired an American musical group of the same name), which was featured in the Beatles' film Magical Mystery Tour.
In the 1970s, Innes joined with Eric Idle, of the Monty Python team, to create the television comedy series “Rutland Weekend Television”. This show spawned The Rutles (the "prefab four"), a Beatles parody band, in which Innes played the character of Ron Nasty, who was loosely based on John Lennon. Innes played Nasty in “All You Need Is Cash”. Innes also contributed to the Pythons' final BBC TV series in 1974 - he wrote a squib of a song called "George III" (sung by a pastiche black American girl group) which appears in the episode "The Golden Age Of Ballooning", he wrote the song "Where Does A Dream Begin?" (included in the episode "Anything Goes: The Light Entertainment War") and he co-wrote the "Most Awful Family In Britain" sketch in the last episode, "Party Political Broadcast."
Innes appeared in “Monty Python and the Holy Grail”, playing a head-bashing monk and the leader of Sir Robin's minstrels, and in Terry Gilliam's “Jabberwocky." He also appeared with the Pythons at their legendary Hollywood Bowl concert. Because of these long-standing connections, Innes is often referred to as "the Seventh Python."
