For those not in the know, WAX LYRICAL was a night of Original Music at The Noel Arms under the tenure of our Virtual Landlady Jo and Craig Langen ou virtual glass collector. They were very popular (and hopefully will come back one day!)
WAX COMICAL is a play on words of that , It’s was and is a night of original comedy, with real comedians from the Comedy Circuit. Which then became Wax Comical Comedy Chip Shop? With the addition of a Chip Shop Tea, meant you didn’t have to cook after work so you could come out and enjoy the show.
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 tonights headliner Nick Page was a finalist from Britain’s Got Talent 2018 and also BBC’s a “House in the Country presenter circa 2002
Hosted by Melton’s and our very own 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”
Here’s Jon at his Sold Out Gig in Covent Garden on Saturday dealing with late comers.
