Wow! We had such a blast at the show. Jon’s ability to connect with everyone in the room was superb. He’s incredibly witty and engaging. Nothing seemed to throw him off game even if people were being a bit vague on purpose. It’s definitely the most interactive and fun we’ve had at a comedy show so far!

I great concept, Jon seems to have a story or a funny quip about everything and anything. Nicely tied together with a uplifting feeling about everyone being individually brilliant. Would definitely see this again.

We had an absolute blast at this show. Jon is a master of crowd work and his interactions with the audience were hilarious. He WILL speak to you but it’s all good natured, fun and - most importantly - very funny.

We both said we might go again. After all, every show must be different! Recommended, 5*.

Saw Jon Pearson today at The Caves justthetonic Go and see him, he’s marvellous, inventive, quicker than a lizard shooting across hot sand and totally engaging. The show is billed
as interactive and you will almost certainly be in conversation with Jon. His ability to find the funny is impressive, he is perceptive and the more you enter into the spirit of the show and speak up, the more he has to work with and the more you’ll laugh as he weaves his narrative.

The most dreadful hour I've ever seen at the Fringe. If you can't be bothered to write a show then why should the audience be bothered to give you an hour of their time in the most richly-served festival of the arts. It's a 50 minutes of below-par MC work that wouldn't pass muster at most UK comedy venues and here it's even more starkly exposed; Audience numbers were so low that we were grilled for information to help him pad out his running time and we felt an intense pressure to respond with something funny just to make the atmosphere less awkward. Something that really isn't our job. Avoid.
