Leye D Johns – Our Outrageous Comedy Host
Having entertained audiences in Blackpool for 26 years, Leye is a multi-award winner with gongs including Entertainment Venue of the Year in the Blackpool Tourism Awards amongst the 16 accolades his show team have won, as well as personal recognition for his Contribution To Tourism Award, you can be sure you’ll be thoroughly looked after by Leye and his established team of entertainers.
From his previous residency at the famous Alabama Showboat from 1994 to 2009, and subsequent UK and European tours as comedy support for Joe Longthorne, Leye entertains thousands of people each year and injects his unique style of infectious humour into any evening’s entertainment. He’s also joined by the very best guest vocalists, comedians, and his beautiful showgirls across our resident Viva shows including ‘The Jersey Beats – Oh What A Nite!‘ and ‘Viva! The Vegas Cabaret! as well as new productions in development right now for 2021 and beyond.
In 2009, respected industry paper The Stage had this to say about Leye’s time at the Alabama Showboat: “Leye D Johns has been at the helm for all 15 years of the venue’s history, but somehow he is as fresh and as funny now as when the paint was still wet.”
You Won’t Believe Some Of The Things He Does… and says!
Often naughty but never blue, always camp, but never OTT, Leye makes the audience feel relaxed and at ease to enjoy the evening ahead… but sit too close to the front and you could be starring in the show! Leye often puts his own spin on some energetic and ingenious routines, this includes anything from his tribute to 42nd Street and waltzing around the stage on roller skates to a fast paced ‘Greatest Showman’ routine.
If you’re celebrating a special occasion, or just partying with friends, you can be sure you’ll get a personal mention from Leye on stage to all our visitors who are with us for a birthday, anniversary, and in fact anything from newly weds, to recent divorcees!
So if you want to see Leye live at our fantastic venue, you can keep an eye on our What’s On schedule of events for fantastic Blackpool shows hosted by our inimitable host.
