Just the Tonic’s Comedy Shindig is back in the grounds of Melbourne Hall.
Tucked neatly inside a walled rose garden in these impressive surroundings, you are covered from the elements as you sip away on a drink, have something amazing to eat and laugh at the best comedy the country has to offer. Julian’s career as a camp turn began over 35 years ago. He began working on the cabaret circuit in the early 80s as The Joan Collins Fan Club. Following an appearance on Saturday Night Live, Channel 4 offered him his own show, Sticky Moments. More TV followed, including Terry and Julian, All Rise for Julian Clary, Prickly Heat, It’s Only TV But I Like It, Strictly Come Dancing, Have I Got News For You, Who Do You Think You Are?, QI, Celebrity Big Brother, Your Face Sounds Familiar, Piers Morgan’s Life Stories, Give a Pet a Home, Nature Nuts and Passions. Theatre includes Leigh Bowery in Boy George’s Taboo (West End and UK tour), the Emcee in Rufus Norris’s Olivier Award-winning production of Kander and Ebb’s Cabaret (West End) and Le Grand Mort (Trafalgar Studios). Julian completed a tour of The Dresser in February 2022. Julian is a regular panelist on Radio 4’s Just a Minute.
His writing includes his memoir A Young Man’s Passage, several adult novels and his on-going series for children, The Bolds. His latest memoir The Lick of Love was published in October 2021.
In 2019 Julian completed a sell-out national tour with his latest one man show Born to Mince. This tour was extended in the Spring of 2022.
