Entertainment Daily: Last Laugh in Vegas – Review

April 5th, 2018

lliv18iOPINION: Last Laugh in Vegas is the surprise gem of the year so far

Legendary Las Vegas performer Frank Marino took one look at the bunch of bygone British entertainers before him and dazzled them with his CV.

Well, move aside, J-Lo. Beat it, Celine. Because now he’s working alongside Cannon & Ball, Celebrity Squares’ Kenny Lynch, Peggy from Hi-de-Hi, Bernie Clifton’s ostrich…

It’s for a one-night-only variety show to end all variety shows, which it very probably will, starring nine old-timers in Sin City, on ITV’s Last Laugh in Vegas.

Beyond The Joke: Last Laugh in Vegas – TV Review

April 5th, 2018

lliv18jMichael Caine used to say that in his world you don’t retire, the phone just stops ringing. Well it never seems to stop ringing for old celebrities being offered shows these days. If it isn’t The Real Marigold Hotel it’s Last Laugh In Vegas, this new series in which variety veterans get to do a big gig in Sin City.

The first of five (yes, five) episodes saw Cannon & Ball, Bobby Crush, Jess Conrad, Su Pollard, Kenny Lynch, Mick Miller, Anita Harris and Bernie Clifton acclimatising to their new location and their new upcoming gig. Egos soon started to rear their heads when it came to choosing the best hotel room. Ageing rock and roller Jess Conrad bagged the best suite and wasn’t budging, immediately setting himself up as the bad guy, while 1970s pianist Bobby Crush drew the short straw.
