Milton Jones? You know, the weird bloke with the shirts from Mock The Week! Comedian, writer and actor, whose stand-up is full of surrealism, nonsense and sharp wit. His style of humour is based on mostly one-liners involving puns. Jones has had various shows on BBC Radio 4, at the beginning of which he is sometimes announced as 'Britain's funniest Milton'.

'No-one can touch Jones when he hits his stride' (The Guardian)
'The best one-line merchant in British Comedy' (Chortle).

Milton Jones tour dates
Gary Delaney is a razor sharp one-liner comedian, who is widely regarded as being the most quotable comic on the circuit. The high quantity of stand out gags leaves the audience struggling to remember them all. He regularly plays all the big clubs including The Comedy Store, Highlight, Jongleurs, Komedia, Glee, Rawhide, The Frog and Bucket, Hyena, Baby Blue, The Stand, Comedy Café, Lee Hurst's Backyard, Banana Cabaret and headlines at clubs throughout the UK.
Gary is a regular guest on Mock The Week and has also appeared on Dave's 'One Night Stand', Comedy Central's 'Comedy Blue' and on Channel 4's 'Robert's Web' as well as Radio 4's 'Loose Ends' and Radio 2's 'Russell Kane's Whistle-Stop Tour'. His debut show 'Purist' was a big hit at the Edinburgh Festival in 2010, selling out every night and receiving many four and five star reviews.
'Gary Delaney has more quality jokes in this hour than many comics have in their entire careers… Quite brilliant' (The Scotsman).
'I laughed and I laughed and I laughed! A master craftsman' (The Times)
'Taut, brilliant one-liners. Delaney was worth the price of admission alone' (Chortle)
'... Razor sharp one-liners' (The Daily Telegraph)
Gary Delaney was placed in Ents24's top 5 hardest-working comedians 2017 and 2016.
Gary Delaney tour dates
A stand up comedian working in the UK and abroad.
A popular comic/DJ on MTV, Ben has also performed on the BBC's Stand Up Show and They Think It's All Over.
His routines are a breath of fresh air, and highly original - check out his Shakespearian Porn routine...
'Killer gags' (The Scotsman)
'well-stocked arsenal of sharp lines and the wherewithal to work any crowd make Norris one of the more engaging and enjoyable comics' (Chortle)
'A master of the craft... an hour of the most polished stand-up you are likely to see'
'One of the comedy circuits best improvisers' (The Daily Mirror).
Ben Norris tour dates
Probably best known as being a third of the We Are Klang sketch group with Greg Davies and Marek Larwood, Steve Hall is a superb stand-up in his own right and has provided support for Russell Howard on three of his sell-out national tours.
Steve has been called a Steve Coogan 'lookalike and soundalike', which makes sense as they are distantly related through a convoluted web of Irish cousins. Hecklers tend to think Steve looks more like Mr Bean. Daily Telegraph Comedy Awards 2003 and BBC Comedy Awards 2003 runner-up.
'The most intelligent stand-up you've never heard of' (GQ)
'His phrasing is joyous and choice of words close to poetic' (Metro)
'Deadpan brilliance' (Time Out)
'Wonderfully misanthropic' (Sunday Times)
''Russell Howard's fine tour support' (The Times)
'A lovely, friendly, thoroughly entertaining show' (Chortle)
'This is stand-up as it should be: snappy and smart, occasionally nasty, and always funny' (The List).
Steve Hall tour dates
Excellent comedian from Edinburgh who has appeared frequently on TV.
For over a decade Dan’s twisted logic has been gladdening Stand-Up Comedy audiences across the UK and Ireland. He’s also performed his accessible but frequently childish surrealism in front of chubby perspiring ex-pats in Dubai and Oman, and had his grammar rectified by politer crowds in Germany and Holland.
