Thursday 14th Nov:

Noels Arms: Wax Comical hosted by: Jon Pearson, Headlining Paul Pirie. Food 7.30pm 8pm

For those not in the know, WAX LYRICAL was a night of Original Music created by Jo Bowtell and Craig Langan a few years ago!

The nights were very popular (and hopefully will come back soon!)

WAX COMICAL is a play on words of that, It’s a night of original comedy, with real comedians from the Comedy Circuit. Why Comedy Chip Shop? If your quick enough, and pop into the Noel’s Arms and pay your money, you can have food prior to the show. Fish and Chips or Sausage are served at 7:30pm which I think is great because you don’t have to worry about getting tea first on a “School Night”! Its free to get in, and a buskers bucket is in operation at the End.

Please bear in mind these comics have used public transport to get here BECAUSE THEY AINT LOCAL! So, I think a fiver in the bucket for 5 comics entertaining you all night, is a fiver well spent.

I’ve seen several comics here that have appeared on TV’s live at the Apollo, two I can think of have wrote Comedy for TV and Radio (Dane Babtiste “Sunny D BBC3 and Alfie Moor “It’s a Fair Cop” Radio 4, and Nick Page was a finalist from BGT 2018 and also BBC’s a “House in the Country presenter circa 2002

Give it a Go! It’s a top night out and a great start to the weekend especially if you plan do some Karaoke on the way home!

Hosted by Jon Pearson: Jon began stand-up comedy in 2010, with his first performance at Birmingham’s Highlight Comedy Club.

Two successful Edinburgh shows later, and five years working the UK comedy circuit, Jon is now regularly found at the biggest and best comedy clubs across the UK including The Glee Club, The Comedy Store and Jongleurs, both as an act and a compere.

His 2015 Dave’s Leicester Comedy Festival show, Jon Pearson: Tall Order, sold out at Melton Theatre within 2 weeks of the tickets going on sale.

Jon’s laid-back storytelling has audiences hanging on his every word. With tales based around his own life experiences, his anecdotes are relatable and certain to have people in hysterics.

Personally, and a personally speaking! I’m very much Looking forward to the day Jon takes his role as Ed Kemper in The Musical Version of Netflix series “Mind Hunter”

Paul Pirie:

A brilliant natural comedian, Paul Pirie comes packed full of energy and uses every ounce to maximum effect, with superb delivery. With a set that jumps from bitchy to silly, you’re never more than a line away from a great pun, insight or well crafted punch line, delivered with a ferocity that makes Paul’s humble beginnings on the Scottish circuit seem such a long time ago. Paul’s career has encompassed TV, Film and Radio alongside his skills as a stand-up, and he is now one of the biggest Scottish acts on the UK comedy circuit.

He’s a confident and intelligent comedian who makes it his mission to work and entertain his audience. Paul’s material is superbly individual and put simply, and always delivers a refreshing burst of laugh out loud comedy that leaves audiences in raptures.
