I always loved his biting stand up as Lily Savage and by all accounts a very genuine kind Gentleman. RIP
Three according to the report a read and kidney failure……despite all that got himself together and carried on….apparently on stage just 4 days ago. RespectHe’d had two major heart attacks in the past. He used to joke he was on borrowed time.
Now you’re just name droppingWhen I had an Antique Shop in Rye Julian Clary was a regular customer. He bought a few items that needed delivering. I duly arrived at his house. He offered me a glass of wine and said we'll sit out in the garden as his neighbour was joining him for a drink. Next moment this fence panel opened and Paul O'Grady walked through with 5 dogs. Julian had 3 dogs at the time as well including Fanny the Wonderdog, who by this time blind and nearly deaf.
He was a nice person, RIP
Little fact the cottage Julian Clary lives in was previously owned by Noel Coward. Alan Carr and Vic Reeves also live in the small village of Aldington.
Pretty much this. Life is very precious and l will say R.I.P about anyone who passes away, like you though l found his brand of comedy quite ascerbic, not my thing at all.Sad news. In the same way I never liked Michael Portillo as a politician but love him as a TV presenter I was never a fan of O'Grady's comedy, but we absolutely loved his dog programmes. Gentle and heart-warming, just what we needed.
