It’s time to ditch the diet and embrace ‘Chubby’ as Roy books for his return to the resort next year.

Adult comic Roy Chubby Brown joined the Viva Blackpool! line-up this summer, with a series of shows drawing in the crowds.

Now, the Church Street cabaret venue has announced eight shows running from May to December. In his new show, Brown urges audiences to ‘ditch the diet, put down the lettuce’ and ‘don’t get fit, get fat’.

A spokesman for Viva said: “This larger than life giant of comedy is back in Blackpool for a series of dates throughout the year; Friday nights will never be the same.

“Packed with belly-busting jokes, Chubby is chubby in every sense of the word.

“Roy will be supported by a live band as he returns to his spiritual home of Blackpool –the place to catch him at his very best.”

This summer, ahead of 
Viva shows, Brown paid tribute to the resort, saying: “Blackpool has been my apprenticeship.

“Frank Carson, Roy Walker, Les Dawson, the Krankies, Danny La Rue, Cannon and Ball and all the rest would come back and have a chat about the shows.

“So many of them are gone now.”

Brown’s 2015 shows are scheduled for May 1 and 22, July 31, August 14 and 28, September 11 and October 2, as well as Sunday, December 27.

Tickets are now on sale from £17.50, including show only or dinner and show packages, from the Viva box office by calling (01253) 297297.
