15/2/15 Review of Jon Pearson one man hour long show in Melton. Although the photo doesn’t show it, as it was taken early, this was a sell out show. 350 or so people in the Melton theatre, a lovely venue. It was a show that included new material in the first half and current material in the last half. This show was in front of a home town crowd, which helped create a good atmosphere, but wasn’t crucial to the success of the night. This was down to Pearson himself. He looks at home, w…ith a microphone in hand, in front of a crowd. He’s got both confidence and presence and can entertain. The material itself was good. The second half was smooth and worked well, but even the new material that was being tested was above par. There were the odd bits in the first part that didn’t go as well as other bits, but which were in themselves, still good. A decent show and one worth travelling to see.
