Bobby, one of the stars of the hit TV show Not Going Out, said: “Viva’s going to be smashing and it’s just what Blackpool needs. Hard working families come to Blackpool to see a show, have a laugh and watch the dancing girls – that’s what they’ll get at VIVA!”
For camp comic Leye, who has just finished touring with Joe Longthorne, it is a dream come true to open his own club and after 20 years of performing along the Golden Mile he knows what the public want to see.
Leye, winner recently of the Individual Contribution To Blackpool Tourism award, added: “If you’d told me a year ago I would have my own club on Blackpool Promenade, I’d have smacked you on the bottom with my bare hand and told you to go away. And now look!
“I’ve got a great team around me of singers, dancers and comedians that will give people a great night out. And I mean proper artists, not TV talent show rejects!
“After a hard day of sunbathing on the beach, holidaymakers can just pop across the road for a lovely meal and watch an amazing show at a reasonable price.”
VIVA! Opens on Friday August 10th 2012 with performances on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays all year round. For more details check http://www.vivablackpool.com
