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'. 'The wild-haired Jones has raised wordplay to the level of fine art' (Radio Times) 'He's fast, absurd and very funny' (Radio Times) 'No-one can touch Jones when he hits his stride' (The Guardian) 'The best one-line merchant in British Comedy' (Chortle). 'Absurdist, one-line masterpieces' (The Times). Milton Jones was named in Ents24's top 5 hardest-working comedians of 2015.
