“Dissapointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Perhaps not the best one Ive seen there did not appear to have the glamour to it or sparkle of previous shows. The back up singers were good, one male one female but dull and miserable song choices. Lady singer looked as if she was dressed for waitressing..a bit of show biz please!.. I will go again as I know it was just a glitch that will be fixed.

“Fantastic show at a great venue...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

We've just had a fantastic evening at the Viva Show Bar such great value for money from start to finish. What a great performance from Leye De Johns and the Viva Showgirls, the female vocalist had a fabulous voice and was just amazing. We were a party of five and we love the venue it's so intimate for the show and comfortable. The highlight was Joe Longthorne he was truly outstanding this venue really suits Joe he seems so at ease and really involves the audience. I have been personally following Joe since 1991 and I can honestly say he shines at 'Viva' this certainly won't be our last visit to the venue. Thank you to all the staff at the venue who make it such a special experience looking after everyone. See you again soon. Mel & Steve Marsden

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Booked this through a Groupon offer. Food was included which was edible. Show was disappointing - expected more glitz and glamour for a place called Viva. The place is huge and was only about a third full which did not give it much atmosphere. Will stick to Funny Girls when we go to Blackpool again.

“wonderful evening!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

my friend and I took our kids aged 9 and 12....they had a fab time!! The show is cheeky but not rude and is suitable for all ages. 3 hours of fun for the entry price and the bar prices were really reasonable. We all loved the show, it was mad, entertaining and very funny!! Well worth a visit
