Gig-gles: Esplanade Presents: Late Night With Jon Chan

The Sistic ticketing page for Jon Chan's upcoming July gig in Esplanade opens with an emphatic declaration:

To say that Jon Chan is Singapore's worst-kept musical secret is an understatement.

Uh, yeah. Sure. Good job, Sistic.

Ok, look. No disrespect to the dude's music, or his upcoming solo album Ears & Eyes (emoticus introspecticus, I forcast). But ummm... gee... his name is Jon Chan. JON CHAN. J-O-N C-H-A-N.

Geddit? Not even capital letters can rub off the plain-as-Jane-and-John-Wayne front. Hot damn, Oxford might as well scrap its current definition of "understatement" and sketch his mug there. In this part of the world, having a name like Jon Chan is equivalent to being American and named Sue Smith. Or an Englishman named Bob Jones. Or an Irish lad named Liam O'Sullivan. Or a Zombie chap named Grwrerr Krwewrwer. Yeah, you won't believe how many Grwrerr Krwewrwers I've met in my lifetime. Incredibly understated, they all were.
