MILTON Jones follows in the family footsteps at Leamington’s Spa Centre later this month.
The comedian’s brand of humour is based on one-liners involving puns delivered in a deadpan and slightly neurotic style.
A regular guest panellist on Mock the Week, he has also had various shows on Radio 4, appeared on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow and Live at the Apollo, and a few years back he wrote the surrealist, partially biographical novel, Where Do Comedians Go When They Die? – Journeys of a Stand-Up. He won the Perrier comedy award for best newcomer in 1996.
He is currently on the road with his new show Temple of Daft.
It’s a madcap journey in which Milton follows in the footsteps of his great-uncle – who looks suspiciously like Milton.
Unlike previous shows the show follows a storyline, but audiences can expect trademark gags as well as the trademark multi-coloured shirts and big hair.
He stops off at the Spa Centre on Thursday October 29.
