The latest top comic to appear at Melton Theatre was rapturously received by a packed audience on Saturday night.

Josh Widdicombe brought his special brand of humour, which highlights the absurdities of life, to the town for a second time.

An d he didn’t disappoint with hilarious anecdotes based around his experiences on sleeper trains, contactless debit cards and the traumas of having to sleep in a cabin bed as a child.

There was plenty of repartee with people in the front rows too with a string of inventive ad libs from the man who made his name on television shows such as The Last Leg and Mock The Week.

He was amused that many in the audience didn’t appear to live in Melton and that he was pronouncing Melton Mowbray wrongly.

It was touching that he almost shyly plugged his new BBC3 sitcom at end but his career is clearly on the rise.
