Johnnie Casson – A Comedy One-off with his All-singing All-dancing Variety Show

A comedy legend, that will have you in fits of laughter in just a few minutes, is bringing his Variety Show to the Blackburn Empire on Thursday 20th February 2020.

Tickets start at just £9 and the funds raised are in aid of the Blackburn Empire Theatre and Blackpool Equity Benevolent Funds.

Michael Berry, chairman at the Blackburn Empire Theatre, said:

“Johnnie is a comedy legend and if you have never seem him before, this is your chance. He has audiences in fits of laughter within seconds. So funny you will be sore from laughing.

“Johnnie is heading up this Variety Show, which will feature singing, dancing and, of course, Johnnie’s classic jokes. We are very grateful that funds will be supporting the theatre too.

“Come along and have an evening of good old-fashioned fun.”
