Terry And Julian, 1992
Terry and Julian was a sitcom starring Julian Clary that ran on Channel 4 for 1 series of 6 episodes in 1992.
The title was a spoof of the hugely sucessful BBC sitcom Terry and June, indeed the great June Whitfield herself made a guest appearance in an episode.
Unusually for a sitcom, Terry and Julian was one of the few sitcoms to break the “Fourth Wall” by recognising the studio audience and viewers, employing the use of audience participation.
Meet Terry. Your average hetrosexual man living in a flat in Streatham, he has a girlfriend: Rene who s a policewoman.
When Terry advertises for a lodger he couldn’t have imagined what kind of person would apply. His new lodger is a flamboyant gay Channel 4 celebrity named Julian.
It’s not long before Julian is disrupting Terry’s mundane life, disrupting his relaionship wth his girlfriend and has turned his flat into something resembling an 18th century Turkish Boudoir.
