I’m Julian; this is my friend Sandy

Julian and Sandy

Julian (Hugh Paddick) and Sandy (Kenneth Williams)  are always to be found where the effete meet. These two ex-chorus boys are game for anything.

From working as part time domestics while ‘resting’ they progressed to running almost every trendy activity going from fox hunting in Carnaby Street to the gents outfitting department of MI5.

They live in Chelsea with their friend Gordon, a former attendant at the local slipper baths.

Julian is possibly the more sensitive of the two but no one likes to go near enough to find out.

Clubs: The Marine Commando, Paddington and the Sheep’s Eye, Tangiers.
Hobbies: You must be joking!

A glossary of words used by Julian and Sandy and their (printable) meanings. Most of the words are of gypsy origin or fairground or circus slang now used by actors and dancers in other branches of the theatre. Some words are Kenneth Williams’ and Hugh Paddick’s own natural form of expression.
