Viva Burlesque is Back to Tickle Your Fancy


Viva Burlesque! is a SIN-tilating adults only cabaret show where the West End meets Las Vegas with stupendous showgirls and a hefty amount of very naughty humour, making this the cheeky cherry on top of this not-to-be-missed cabaret.

After the shows smash-hit premiere at the Mercury in February of this year, it is back for a raunchy residency, firstly on 22nd July with ‘Vintage Hollywood’ and 23rd September with another spectacular ‘Viva at the Copacabana’. Featuring performances from some of Europe’s most coveted, and award-winning burlesque stars, this fast-paced frolic of a show promises to bigger and better than ever before.

Written and hosted by Carli Norris (Eastenders, Holby City, Tilly Trotter), co-hosted by Mercury Panto legend Antony Stuart-Hicks and joined by west-end star and Mercury favourite Craig Mather the two-hour evening of live entertainment ticks all the boxes and is not for the comedically faint-hearted.

Producer Dom Atkins remarked of the show’s return “The show in February rocked the house down, I don’t think I’ve ever heard laughter like it, so we are just delighted to be back with two more Viva shows this year!” Norris, who also directs added “Be warned our show contains strong language, partial nudity, and extremely funny bits… it’s a scream!”
Vintage Hollywood will feature Cherry Shakewell, Felicity Furore, Jeanie Wishes and Vicky Butterfly, all of whom delighted the packed crowd with their brilliant burlesque. The four starlets are back with new acts, even more stunning costumes and more than a twinkle in their eye. Guest acts for September is to be confirmed.

Put on your glad rags, warm up your voices and hold on tight as Viva Burlesque brings you another raunchy, raucous ride… it is the hottest ticket in town!
