Milton Jones

Milton Jones

Most people know Milton Jones as the comedian with the loud shirts and messed up hair, however his stand-up is built on much more than a funny appearance. Radio Times said that the “wild-haired Jones has raised wordplay to the level of fine art”, while The Guardian stated “no one can touch Jones when he hits his stride”.

Born in 1964 as Milton Hywel Jones, he’s been a comedian since the ’90s. Although he won the prestigious Perrier Best Newcomer Award at the 1996 Edinburgh Festival Fringe for his first solo show, it wasn’t until 2008 when he joined the panel TV series Mock The Week that his career really skyrocketed.

In addition to television appearances on comedy shows like Live At The Apollo, Lee Mack’s All Star Cast, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow and Dave’s One Night Stand, Jones starred in the 2012 Channel 4 sitcom The House Of Rooms, centred around a man and his mother who live together and rent out rooms.

Jones has also been a familiar voice across the radio waves. Among several BBC Radio 4 series, his third – Another Case Of Milton Jones – won him a silver Sony Award in 2011 and saw him nominated for a Writers Guild Award in 2012.

A man of many talents, Jones has even penned the books Ten Second Sermons, Even More Concise 10 Second Sermons and Where Do Comedians Go When They Die?.

Yet his first love has remained hitting the road and performing live in front of audiences. Among his biggest UK tours were 2013’s On the Road, 2015’s Milton Jones And The Temple of Daft and 2017’s Milton Jones Is Out There. All his shows have been characterised by twists of surreal logic and clever one-liners, plus as a Christian he intentionally avoids using profanity in his routines.
