Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
Following a hugely successful 2019 run, Julian Clary will take his show Born To Mince across the UK next spring.
The new run of dates kicks off in Portsmouth on Saturday 25 April 2020, taking in a total of 22 shows, finishing with a six-night residency at London’s UCL Bloomsbury.
Fans can get tickets for the shows 48 hours early through our presale.
The presale begins at 10:00 on Tuesday 24 September 2019.
“Are you ready for some filth? I know I am. Time once again for me to sally forth and pleasure the provinces with my particular brand of saucy innuendo,” says the comedian on the newly announced dates. “Let me at them!”
The original 2019 run of Clary’s outrageously camp Born To Mince show drew raves reviews, with The Times calling the comic “the master of camp comedy… mixing the expected with the spontaneous, he is pure entertainment”, in a four star write up.
Clary has been a mainstay of the British comedy scene since breaking through in the 1980s, touring globally with his critically acclaimed stand up shows The Mincing Machine Tour, My Glittering Passage, Lord of the Mince, Position Vacant: Apply Within, The Joy of Mincing and latest show, Born To Mince.
Alongside stand up, Clary will be familiar to UK TV audiences through his appearances on shows such as QI, Have I Got News For You and Whose Line Is It Anyway?.
The comic is a pantomime regular and for the past three years has appeared in The London Palladium’s productions of Snow White, Dick Whittington and Cinderella.
A renowned author, Julian has published several best-selling novels alongside three well-received children’s books.
Known for his unique brand of saucy humour, Julian Clary will bring his latest show Born To Mince to venues across the UK next spring.
