Comic and Strictly Come Dancing star Brian Conley coming to the Marlowe Theatre

Brian Conley's show will include new material and old favourites

Brian Conley will perform his new stage act at Canterbury’s Marlowe Theatre next month.

The 56-year-old show is called Brian Conley: Still The Greatest Entertainer and features both classic and brand new material.

Conley is known as a multi-talented entertainer who dabbles in comedy, song and acting.

Just six months ago, he was at the centre of a row after he and his Welsh dance partner Amy Dowden werre voted off Strictly Come Dancing.

The Marlowe Theatre welcomes Brian Conley

The audience watched as Conley leapt on to the judges’ podium where he described the studio a “s**t hole” and claimed producers had only spent £25 on the toilets.

The outburst did not make it into the final cut of the show, broadcast on BBC1 in October.

Conley later went on the Lorraine show “set the record straight”.

He said: “I didn’t have a rant. I was having a laugh. And that’s all it was. It was a wonderful time. I said, ‘There’s one thing that really upsets me being on this show… the toilets.

“Everyone thought I was going to say something profound. I went, ‘It’s the toilets, they’ve got to sort them out. Just buy 10 quid’s worth of bleach to get rid of that smell’ and that was that.”

Conley, who was born in West London, began his career as a pub entertainer and support act.

He began to make tv appearances in the early 1980s on shows such as Make Me Laugh and The Laughter Show before London Weekend Television gave him his own show. He is a winner of tv and comedy awards.

Brian Conley: Still the Greatest Entertainer takes place on Tuesday, March 24 at 7.30pm. It lasts just over two hours and tickets cost between £19.25 and £24.25.
