Julian Clary was born 25 May 1959 and is an English comedian and novelist, known for his deliberately stereotypical camp style, with a heavy reliance on innuendo and double entendre.
Clary was born in Surbiton. He is partly of German descent.
By his own words, he was conceived in broad daylight in Clacton-on-Sea in the autumn of 1958. Clary was born the following May to Peter Clary, a policeman, and Brenda, a probation officer. He lived in Teddington with his parents and two older sisters, until he left for Goldsmith's College at 18 to study Drama.
Clary was educated at St Benedict's School, an independent Catholic school in Ealing, London. He studied English and Drama at Goldsmith's College, part of the University of London.
Clary started his performing career as a fake keyboardist for pop band "Thinkman" (a recording project conceived by Rupert Hine) under the name Leo Hurll.His comedy career started on the alternative comedy scene in the early 1980s, first under the alias Gillian Pieface and later as The Joan Collins Fanclub. He wore heavy glam make-up and dressed in outrageous fashions, usually involving leather and hinting at bondage. His pet dog "Fanny the Wonder Dog" also featured in performances.
Since then, Clary has undertaken several successful tours of his stage act, two of which have been released on video: The Mincing Machine Tour (1989) and My Glittering Passage (1993). From September 2009, Clary will tour the UK in Lord Of The Mince, his first UK tour since An Evening with... Julian Clary in 2007.
After a number of appearances in the mid 1980s on Friday Night Live, he co-hosted the short-lived ITV game show Trick Or Treat (1989) with Mike Smith, before going on to greater success later in 1989 with his own high-camp gameshow Sticky Moments with Julian Clary for Channel 4. More of a vehicle for Clary's brand of humour than a genuine gameshow, Sticky Moments was a light-hearted "non-quiz" satire, with Clary often awarding points because he liked the contestants rather than for any particular skill or aptitude. He later starred in the 1992 "audience participation sitcom" Terry and Julian with Lee Simpson, again for Channel 4. His next series was the BBC's studio-based All Rise for Julian Clary in 1996, in which he played a judge in a mock courtroom setting.
In 1992, he played a cameo guest star part in the BBC drama, Virtual Murder. In his episode, "A Dream of Dracula", he played an undertaker, alongside other guest stars including Alfred Marks, Jill Gascoine, Ronald Fraser and Peggy Mount. The same year he also played a role in Carry On Columbus, an unsuccessful revival of the Carry On films (see below). He also appeared in an episode of the improvisational comedy show Whose Line Is It Anyway?
In 1999, he became a team captain on the quiz show It's Only TV... But I Like It along with Phill Jupitus and Jonathan Ross.
In 2004, Clary took part in the BBC series Strictly Come Dancing, finishing third with his partner Erin Boag.
In 2005, Clary hosted Come and Have A Go for the National Lottery.
On 1 February 2006, he appeared on the BBC 2 programme Who Do You Think You Are?, a genealogy series which traced his ancestors to a World War I flight engineer and German immigrants among both his mother's and father's forebears. In May 2006, Clary hosted the topical quiz show Have I Got News for You.
In September 2006, Clary returned to primetime TV as presenter and judge on Channel 5's brand new celebrity performance programme The All Star Talent Show. He was joined by two guest judges every week to assess celebrity performances and co-presented with Myleene Klass and Andi Peters. He also voices the Channel 5 children's series The Little Princess with Jane Horrocks.
In November 2006, Clary joined the panel of QI, a panel game/comedy show hosted by Stephen Fry and also appeared on an episode of The New Paul O'Grady Show.
In 2007, he made a cameo appearance in the Australian soap opera, Neighbours, in scenes filmed in London with Natalie Bassingthwaighte.
From 20 March 2007, Clary presented a brand new show for the BBC called The Underdog Show. Celebrities and children were paired up with rescue dogs. They then commenced training and competed against each other in obedience and agility trials in a live arena. The show ran until 26 April 2007 Some of the celebrities let viewers adopt the dog which they rescued, while others kept their dog because they couldn't let them go.
From April - May 2007 Clary toured various theatres in the UK in An Evening with... Julian Clary, produced by Marc Sinden (who had also appeared with Julian in Carry on Columbus), for The One Night Booking Company.
From 2 October 2007 - 19 April 2008, Clary played the much coveted role of 'Emcee', in Rufus Norris's Olivier Award winning production of Cabaret, in its second year in the West End of London.
In January 2008, Clary was drafted in as a relief presenter for This Morning, co-presenting alongside Fern Britton and Ruth Langsford during Phillip Schofield's absence. Both he and Michael Ball are set to appear throughout this year when Schofield is on holiday.
On 25 April 2008, Clary again fronted the BBC 1 TV Show Have I Got News For You.
In May 2008, Clary filmed an appearance in Celebrity Bargain Hunt to be shown later this year.
Clary has been confirmed to be taking part in the Strictly Come Dancing Tour in January and February 2009 with Lilia Kopylova and dancing a Quickstep and a Samba.
On 16 October 2008, Clary was a short-notice guest on The Paul O'Grady Show after Peter Andre and Katie Price couldn't appear.
