Julian Clary

Talk Art Christmas Special!!!! We meet the one and only Julian Clary, comedy pioneer, camp icon and bonafide Talk Art hero!!!! BORN TO MINCE!!!!

We discuss living with art, the lasting influence of his art teacher and the fine art of Christmas pantomimes! We learn about his interest in the work of Keith Haring, Peter Blake, Jean Cocteau, queer life in the 1980s and his admiration for Noël Coward, Lindsay Kemp and Renaissance Art! We also have an art quiz in the style of Mastermind, to encourage maximum festive drama!!!

After studying Drama and English at Goldsmiths College, University of London, Julian Clary began working on the cabaret and alternative comedy scene in the 1980s, first under the alias Gillian Pieface and later as The Joan Collins Fan-club. We reminisce about Fanny the Wonder Dog and Julian's hosting of groundbreaking TV show Sticky Moments with stage sets inspired by painter Marc Chagall, plus his radical stand-up comedy performances on Friday Night Live, which returned in October 2022 for a special, critically acclaimed & award-nominated brand new episode, as part of the 40th anniversary of Channel 4!

Julian made his London Palladium debut in 2016 and returns to the stage in 2022! This Christmas join comedy superstars Dawn French and Julian Clary, with Alexandra Burke making her Palladium pantomime debut, as they lead the cast of a brand-new production of Jack and the Beanstalk at London’s iconic home of pantomime!
