Julian Deane in the final of NATY

Julian Deane in the final of NATY

Julian Deane came 2nd last night in the final of The New Act of The Year 2011.

Previously known as The Hackney Empire New Act Of The Year, this prestigious competition is in its 29th year. Julian beat 150 other applicants to get to the final and win 2nd place. The show was held last night at the Barbican Theatre and was hosted by Arthur Smith. 


Chortle said of his performance:
"An antidote to such mediocrity comes courtesy of the assured and brilliant writing of Julian Deane. The most underplayed and honest act of the evening, Deane is a class apart. Each seemingly everyday tale ends with a brilliant and believable punchline, the majority of his set deals with his changing relationship with his growing children and provides a real insight into his world. A master of the pull back and reveal, Deane consistently rewards the audience with hilarious twists and turns. His one minor fault is his insistence on pointing out 'this is true' before each tale, which can destroy the belief that it is. But this is a small flaw and it is surprising he didn't claim the top spot, rather than his joint second placing." - Chortle, Corry Shaw 21/03/2011
