Enjoy Celebrity Radio’s Brian Conley Life Story Interview ~ Hairspray Musical….
Brian Conley is one of the UK’s greatest comedians, TV Stars & musical theatre actors.
He’s toured the UK in Hairspray & Oliver and is about to start a run in Barnum.
He shot to fame on ITV with the ‘Brian Conley Show’ with legendary characters like ‘Septic Peg’ & ‘Nick Frisby’ with his catchphrase “It’s A Puppet!”
Brian is one of Belfield’s favourite Stars. He has one of the best singing voices in the business and a remarkable singing voice.
He’s the all rounder who in 2008 Starred in Hairspray in the West End.
Brian appeared as part of Team Ant on Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway, and took over from Michael Ball in the musical Hairspray playing the role of Edna Turnblad at London’s Shaftesbury Theatre.
He also played the same role in the UK Tour of Hairspray, sharing the role with Michael Ball and actor Michael Starke, at selected UK venues. He has also partaken in his own live show, “The Best of Brian Conley”, which showcases ‘the best’ of Brian’s material from his past shows, interspersed with occasional showreels of either Larry the Loafer, Dangerous Brian (depending on who Brian is about to come on stage as) or a generic showreel of his work.
Like the Brian Conley Show, the stage show invites guests to perform on stage alongside Brian. In 2010, the show went on tour again, covering more areas of the country.
He recently finished playing Fagin in Cameron Mackintosh’s Oliver! and also finished a West End run as Edna Turnblad in Olivier Award-winning Hairspray. His recent stage career has included lead roles in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, The Music Man at the Chichester Festival, Brother Love’s Travelling Salvation Show (directed and choreographed by Craig Revel Horwood) and Olivier Award-winning Jolson, in which he played Al Jolson.
On 7 November 2012, ITV confirmed that Conley would feature in the 2012 series of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!. On 19 November 2012, Brian left the jungle on medical grounds.
In April 2014, Conley was a contestant on CBBC’s ‘Driving Academy’.
