Host

Milton Jones is a Perrier and Sony award-winning comedian, whose wordplay and surreal observations frequently reduce audiences to tears. The panel show regular and writer and star of Radio 4 series Another Case of Milton Jones, Thanks a Lot, Milton Jones!, and The Very World of Milton Jones describes his live act as ‘weaving threads of ideas with the tatters of his life, to fashion a uniquely fetching jumper of obscurity’ – whatever that means.

Milton conjures up truly ridiculous images and finds hidden meaning in the most mundane phrases. He twists logic, mistakes handkerchiefs for ghosts – and waits whilst the penny drops. He is also never short of valuable advice: ‘If you’re being chased by a police dog, try not to go through a tunnel, then onto a little seesaw, then jump through a hoop of fire. They train for that.’

Milton’s wonderful use of language has been showcased repeatedly on Radio 4 (with nine series of his own show), but has also been seen on Live at the Apollo, Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow, and Mock the Week, as well as in his first novel, Where Do Comedians Go When They Die?He’s also been a regular writer on BBC1’s hit Not Going Out.
