Never miss another 'The Rutles' show
A Lazy Sunday Afternoon With: The Rutles + John Otway
The tragic history of The Rutles was essential primetime TV - at least on RWT (Rutland Weekend Television). Former Bonzo Dog and the 'Seventh' Monty Python member Neil Innes - with a welter of friends (although not Eric Idle) - recreate the magic of the Prefab Four.

John first achieved notoriety with his eye-watering performance on Old Grey Whistle Test and subsequent hit single 'Really Free' in 1977. A heady mix of blind ambition and rank incompetence was to keep this microstar shining for almost two decades despite Otway's ability to turn any situation to his own disadvantage.
His autobiography 'Rock and Roll's Greatest Failure' out sold, by a factor of ten, all the records he had released since his hit, and now Otway is struggling to live up to this billing - selling out London Astoria for his 2000th gig in 1993, filling the Royal Albert Hall in 1998, and charting at number 9 with his 2002 single 'Bunsen Burner'. For John 'Two Hits' Otway, 'the future's bright; the future's Otway!
