Julian Clary Lord of the Mince
Clary is a comedic force of nature and what better way to celebrate his
50th birthday than go back on the comedy trail. That's right, Julian
Clary is back (did he ever really go) as the viewer is treated to one of
his live UK tours as this ageing cougar proves that he still has it,
once again noting that no one is safe from his comedy.
The title of this
DVD is also quite apt, Lord of the Mince and Clary definitely does not
mince his words that even caused an uproar in Britain when he mentioned
Norman Lamont and the word fisting in the same sentence.
Of course, if
you don't know by now that Julian Clary is gay, than you've been living
in some Tibetan Cave for the last few decades and much of his humour
does revolve around his sexploits within the gay community and that of
his close relationship.
That's another thing that I like about Clary is
that while he is openly gay, he is not shy to let the viewers in on his
personal life that had us in hysterics for most of this DVD. I mean how
could you not like a man who has a dog called Jism, allegedly anyway!
aside, Clary also gives his opinions on
not just Britain but the world and there is a really bizarre sketch in
this release where he invites audience members to partake in his very
own paranormal experiment that made me feel quite embarrassed for these
poor people. Never EVER sit near the front!
However this is where Clary shines, making light of others
as he spins his words like a Bard from yesteryear, although considerably
more filthy. Classic humour but just be warned, political correctness is
a bad word in Julian Clary Lord of the Mince! Definitely for those who
like their comedy a little risqué!
