What’s on TV: Interview: Su Talks Last Laugh in Vegas

April 3rd, 2018

wotv18aSu Pollard: ‘I’d tell anyone to go to Vegas if they can. It was a great adventure!’

A group of showbiz legends are given one last shot to put on a show in the variety capital of the world in new ITV show, Last Laugh in Vegas. Here, Su Pollard lifts the lid on what happened in Sin City…

Here, Su, 68, reveals all about preparing for the big night…

How did you find rehearsals for the show?
“We had this lovely choreographer, who initially wanted to see what we could do and it was almost a form of bonding. Anita had great poise and Bobby Ball was mincing around. I’m not a brilliant dancer but you have to do your best. I did feel vulnerable in there because there’s nothing to hide behind. You’ve got all your mates cheering you on but you’re thinking: ‘I’m absolutely dreadful!”

Vegas drag act Frank Marino was the producer on the show. What was he like? And what pointers did he give you?
“I thought Frank was the epitome of showbiz. He does a drag act in Vegas as Joan Rivers and he’s fantastic! He knows exactly what the Vegas audience wants and he gave each of us constructive criticism – he said I needed a translator because I speak too quick!”

In between rehearsals, you get to experience what life is like for the locals in Vegas. Didn’t you all have a go at pole dancing?
“Yes! We had a lady, Tanya, who would show us something different every day and, this time, she showed us how to do pole dancing. Well, Tommy Cannon was fabulous. He’s got a core as strong as you like and he’s nearly 80! He could pole-dance anybody into the ground – whereas the rest of us just fell on the ground!”
