Episode 2
 
The showbiz entertainers begin rehearsals for the biggest performance of their lives, but impressing their American producer Frank Marino is proving to be tough.    
 
Anita Harris, Tommy Cannon, Jess Conrad and Mick Miller take time out of rehearsals to head out into the desert to meet a Native American medicine man; Bobby Crush takes inspiration for his act from the Liberace Museum, and the comedy acts turn to American comedy legend Frankie Scinta for advice on how to win over a Las Vegas audience.
 
Series overview
 
Showbiz legends prepare for the gig of a lifetime in Las Vegas
 
What happens when a group of British showbiz legends are let loose in Sin City? ITV is about to find out in a brand new five-part series for 2018 called Last Laugh In Vegas.
 
Some of the most famous names from comedy, music and variety from the 60s, 70s and 80s are to be given one last shot at putting on their dream gig in the variety capital of the world.  The theatre is booked for one night only and eight acts will be given the chance to fulfil the dream they thought had long gone and put on a spectacular variety performance at one of the iconic venues in Las Vegas.
 
The eight showbiz legends are comedy double act Cannon & Ball, entertainer Bernie Clifton, comedian Mick Miller, pianist and entertainer Bobby Crush, singer Kenny Lynch, 60’s pop idol Jess Conrad OBE, actress and singer Anita Harris and actress, singer and comedienne Su Pollard.
 
Cameras will follow these stars from their departure from their homes in the UK to the moment they step onto the stage in Vegas.  They’ll live in a house together, enjoy and explore the Vegas Strip and rehearse and reminisce together to deliver a show that they'll all be proud of.   
 
Viewers will also be treated to a unique insight into the legends' vast and varied careers as they look back and talk firsthand about their incredible stories.  
 
The culmination will be an hour long special of their variety performance in Vegas.
