Julian Clary, national trinket, author, TV and radio star is coming up your way...
The Joy of Mincing is Julian Clary's celebration of 30 years as a camp comedian. There is so much to tell you; the ups and downs of his sordid love life, the true and heart stopping account of how he saved Dame Joan Collins' life, and don’t start him on the perils of his DIY electrical home enema kit.
On stage Julian will proudly wear his well-deserved M.B.E (Mincer of the British Empire). It was the last thing he expected to receive when he knelt down in front of Prince Charles in the scullery at Buckingham Palace…
And because Julian gives and gives (until it hurts) he will be handing out honours to the lucky few in the audience too. This is Julian at his filthy best. Live and unplugged.
Come and witness a masterclass in camp comedy.
'He never falters. You think knob jokes are easy? Clary makes them flow like cheap German wine. It’s absolute fluff, but he pulls it off.' Dominic Maxwell. The Times.
'Outrageously funny. A master comedian at the top of his game.' Andrew Edwards What’s On Stage.

Mr and Mrs Bold are just like you and me: they live in a nice house (in Teddington), they have jobs (like writing Christmas cracker jokes) and they love to have a bit of a giggle. One slight difference: they're hyenas. Yes, that's right - they're covered in fur, have tails tucked into their trousers, and they really, really like to laugh.
So far, the Bolds have managed to keep things under wraps, even when their children Bobby and Betty were born. But the nosy man next door smells a rat (or a hyena), and a trip to the local wildlife park, and the brilliantly wacky heist that results, could be the end of Teddington's best-kept secret. Whatever will the neighbours think?
Julian says: "I wanted to write a children's BOOK to relive the thrill I used
to get as a child entering a fictional world. The idea came from stories I used to make up
for myself as a child, and I grew up in Teddington – a very suburban place with tree-lined
streets and a nice park – so it seemed right and proper to set it there. I am thrilled to have
the wonderful illustrator David Roberts bring The Bolds to life for me. He has the ability to
convey my humour brilliantly and his drawings are always funny and endearing. Mrs
Bold's hats are a particular delight!"
