Leye D Johns - Comic, Host and Compere

Leye D Johns - comic, host, compere and VIVA showgirls

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 has entertained hundreds of thousands of people as he injects his unique style of infectious humour into any evening’s entertainment joined by the very best guest vocalists, comedians and his beautiful showgirls.
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 yourself, and often puts his own spin on some energetic and ingenious routines – anything from his tribute to ”, to ’42nd Street’ and waltzing around the stage on roller skates to a fast paced ‘Barnum’ circus routine.
