Julian Clary in Canned Clary at The St James StudioPreviews
Music. Filth. Star guests.
Canned, condensed and completely organic, Julian Clary is set to bring you music, filth and star guests in this intimate, queerish show where the public will be partying up close and personal with the man himself. Following eight sold-out shows at The St James Studio in March, Julian Clary, much-loved purveyor of camp old nonsense and genteel ﬁlth, toured Australia, leaving many straight men looking deep inside themselves. Now Julian is back with four even more daringly intimate soirées.
Not content with tormenting the public with his sharp-witted jibes, for each show Julian will be joined by the most entertaining names on his celebrity speed dial, who will be popping in for a cosy chat and a thorough grilling. Audiences can expect intimate revelations, gorgeous costumes and a raffle: a meeting of the W.I. in a sex dungeon kindathang. (Not suitable for children, OAPs or anyone called Nigel.)
Much-loved homosexual and elder statesman of the double entendre, Julian remains one of the country’s most popular and least predictable entertainers. In the past year Julian’s career has gone from strength-to-strength. He has completed a smash-hit UK tour of Position Vacant: Apply Within, lent his sharp tongue to the judging panel on Your Face Sounds Familiar (ITV), shared an insight into his 30-year career in showbiz on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories (ITV) and terrorised the audience at The Jonathan Ross Show (ITV) with a cattle prod! And he’s not done yet.
Since winning Celebrity Big Brother in 2012 Julian has also appeared on TV favourites such as Would I Lie to You? (BBC 1), Q.I. (BBC 2) and Live at the Apollo (BBC 1) and remains a regular panellist on BBC Radio 4’s Just a Minute. He is also a Sunday Times best-selling novelist and his third book, Briefs Encountered, was published in March 2013 to unanimous praise.

“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” The Guardian
“You think knob jokes are easy?…Clary makes them flow like cheap German wine.” The Times
