Julian Clary has revealed he is definitely hoping to create a new gay TV sitcom, with new close friend Julie Goodyear. They are planning to base the series in the fictional B&B they came up with during their time in the house.
Says Julian in a radio interview: “There is talk of a sitcom based in the gay B&B called the White Swallow which seems a good idea to me. And she is very funny and she has got great comic timing. So I think my people are talking to her people.”
Hope this is going to happen; the UK has a lack of gay comedy and camp these days. Julian is all for bringing more camp to the world, telling North Devon Journal…
“Camp comedy is a way of trivialising life – and I’m all for that. It has also always worked really well for me. Does Shirley Bassey ever get fed up with singing Diamonds Are Forever? Of course not. It’s who she is. She’s not suddenly going to become a folk singer with a beard and a finger in her ear.
“The English language lends itself to playing with words and double entendre. That’s specific to English. I don’t think you can do it in Spanish. Why do we like it so much? It’s best not to analyse these things too deeply, but I believe that it works so well because it lightens everything.”
It’s interesting that the job he would have aspired to have if he hadn’t become famous is miles removed from the glamorous artist he became: “I’m quite good at solving people’s problems. So in another life I might have been a counsellor. I’m always doing that in my spare time anyway.”
