Top comics and TV talents are among the new faces heading to Viva Blackpool in 2016.

TV favourites Joe Pasquale and Brian Conley have both confirmed dates at the cabaret venue, as has Britain’s Got Talent star – and Fylde coast regular – Jonathan Antoine.

And those who’ve already proven their popularity at the venue are also returning in the new year, including fellow BGT singers Richard and Adam, plus comedians for all tastes Roy Chubby Brown, Cannon and Ball and Billy Pearce, each with several dates throughout the year.

Former king of the I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! jungle Joe will head to the resort on September 1, with 
Brian making a spring stop-off on April 8.

Jonathan, who appeared at Lytham Festival last summer and opened his recent UK tour at Lowther Pavilion, returns on May 20, while singing siblings Richard and Adam play their now annual new year 
Viva show on January 29.

Managing director Martin Heywood said: “Viva caters for everyone, regardless of whether they are nine or 90 and our 2016 schedule reflects this.

“Our aim is to put memories back into Blackpool and we are delighted to be able to do this by bringing some of the entertainment world’s top names to Viva.”

A full range of early bird deals are available for Viva’s in-house shows for 2016, including the Las Vegas-style cabaret show Viva!, Oh What A Night!, the weekly Comedy Station Comedy Club, and High Jinx family magic show.

“We also believe in delivering value for money throughout the year,” Martin added. “But our current early bird offers deliver even better value and have been created to enable people to buy tickets as Christmas gifts.

“The discounts end on 
December 31, so you’ve still time to get the tickets popped into Santa’s sack.”

Other shows coming up early in the new year include the ever-popular Joe Longthorne’s Valentine’s dinner and dining show, and the Benidorm Show on Friday and Saturday, January 15 and 16, featuring three popular entertainers from the Spanish resort – Jimmy Carol, Smart Move and the Queen-inspired act, One Vision.

“With other brilliant events such as The Billy Joel Story on February 5 and a very special children’s event for Easter, An Enchanted Easter, Viva is raising the bar for entertainment shows for all the family in the coming year,” Martin added.
