Brian Conley to come to the Churchill Theatre

PUBLISHED: 07:00 05 March 2018 | UPDATED: 17:10 08 March 2018

One of the country’s favourite entertainers, Brian Conley, will be returning to Churchill Theatre on Tuesday, March 27, as part of his 45th showbiz anniversary tour, Still The Greatest Entertainer – In His Price Range.

Brian will perform brand-new comedy, sketches and songs, alongside some of his best-known and loved retrospective material from the stage and screen.

Talking about his experiences with Churchill Theatre, Brian said: “I’ve played there a few times over the years.

“We filmed there a few years back because we wanted a live feel for a TV show and it worked really well.

“And of course, I’ve appeared there in panto too.”

Brian will be celebrating his illustrious career with the show, which he called “A potpourri of entertainment and a whole lot of fun.”

He added: “I like to wind up the audience.

“It will be a cheeky show, not rude but cheeky.”

Brian also promises there to be something for everyone in the show: “I’ll be opening with comedy and there will be songs from the musicals and a number of sketches.

“It’s a bit of everything with a lot of surprises thrown in.

“What can possibly go wrong with a trampoline and a member of the audience on stage while trying to recreate the famous lift from Dirty Dancing?”

As a comedian, presenter, singer and actor, Brian’s career has certainly been varied, although he couldn’t choose a favourite.

He said: “I love it all.

“I’ve had the most incredible time and have been so lucky.

“I got my Equity card when I was 12 years old and at stage school and I have been earning money ever since.

“I paid for my own school fees.”

When asked what he enjoys most about being on tour, Brian said:

“I like the feel of the commitment that I give, and the fact people have chosen to come and see me on their night out, possibly after a lovely meal - something they have been looking forward to for a while.

“It is a real buzz.”

Brian believes that the secret to his success it the fact that he loves everything he does: “I love it all.

“I love being out there, meeting people and entertaining them.

“I have never courted press or fame, I just love to entertain.

“Even when I am on holiday with my family, if there is the opportunity for me to get up and entertain people, I will, even if we are somewhere people don’t know me.”

Brian also explained that he has a doppleganger: “People are always mistaking me and Bradley Walsh for each other.

“We made a TV show about it last year and it was funny, we went for a break and a man come up to me saying, ‘I met you years ago’ and went on to say, ‘say hello to your manager for me’.

“When he said the manager’s name I realised he thought I was Bradley. It couldn’t have been timed more perfectly.”

Brian revealed that many people inspire him: “I love funny people: Peter Sellers, Brucie in his heyday, Steve Martin, Bill Hicks and Tommy Cooper - he’s probably my favourite, he was such a naturally funny man.

“I bet if he asked for a cup of sugar people laughed.”

Urging Bromley residents to come along to watch the show, Brian added: “Come and have a laugh, I promise you won’t be disappointed.”

Tickets for the show range from £24.50-£29.00 and dining seats also available.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
