LAUGHTER, fun and music will be the order of the night when Brian Conley steps on to the stage at Ipswich Regent this week.

The versatile performer will be tickling Ipswich's funny bone when his show, A Real Audience with Brian Conley, arrives in town tonight.

Brian has come a long way from the early days of his career in entertainment when, as a 16-year-old, he donned a blue coat and started working for Pontins.

It was a springboard to bigger things and he later joined comedy showband, Tomfoolery, before securing a job as a television warm-up.

Before long he was launching his own television career with The Brian Conley Show, which was soon reaching over 12 million viewers when it hit the nation's screens in 1992.

Acting, stage work, West End shows, films and singing have followed in the decade since and made Brian one of the country's best loved and most popular all round entertainers.

Following the success of the Brian Conley show on ITV earlier this year Brian headed out on the road with his band last month on a 27-date tour which ends in Ipswich tomorrow.

A few days after his tour finishes Brian will be heading into the television studios to perform in a more celebrity packed audience than he is likely to find in Ipswich, when he records And Audience With Brian Conley for ITV1.

And plans to record a new CD, which were shelved earlier this year, look to be back on in the coming months.

This is all not to mention the fact he takes up the role of the Lord Mayor of London in the country's biggest pantomime at the newly refurbished Birmingham Hippodrome at the end of the year.

There's clearly no stopping Brian and he is keeping himself as busy as possible. Who can blame him though? He is a talented man lucky enough to be doing the job he loves and of which he always dreamed.

Tickets for the show cost £17.50 and £15 and are available from the Central Box Office, Princes Street, Ipswich, by calling 01473 433100 or on-line at www.ipswich-ents.co.uk
