Such has been the popularity of Julian Clary’s latest show, Position Vacant, Apply Within, that the comic has added new tour dates.
One of them is on May 17 at Warwick Arts Centre in Coventry, an easy to find destination that’s a five minute drive from the A45. His long-term fans have always known the comic is a cut above the rest of his peers, having found himself on the periphery of being one of the nation’s national comedy treasures.
These days he has a whole new legion of fans following an incredible Celebrity Big Brother win, and 2012 was a stand-out year for the sharp-witted and even sharper-tongued comedian. Fans have flocked to see the flamboyant star in his element, delivering his now infamous brand of outrageous, no-holds barred comedy.
Still unafraid to push boundaries, Position Vacant: Apply Within is not only a stellar night of comedy, but every evening Julian unashamedly flirts in the face of conformists everywhere by welcoming a selection of eligible bachelors onto the stage to win his hand in marriage.
Remaining one of the country’s best-loved entertainers, Julian’s popularity has endured across a three-decade career in showbusiness. As much known for his TV and radio profile as he is for stand-up, last year he appeared on television favourites such as Would I Lie to You?, QI and Live at the Apollo. He remains a regular panellist on BBC Radio 4’s Just a Minute and is also a Sunday Times best-selling novelist and his third book, Briefs Encountered, was published last March to unanimous praise.
According to the Guardian, “His persona of camp superciliousness is effortlessly amusing. Clary’s genius is to find sexual suggestion where the rest of us wouldn’t think of looking.”
