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.

Happy to discuss anything with the audience her distinctive style is both cheeky and charming' (Funhouse Comedy) 'One of the most delightful performers you're ever likely to see' (GQ Magazine).
