Milton Jones is back
Here is one madcap comedian you may not be familiar with, but to people in Great Britain, he is one of the funniest men on the scene at the minute. Milton Jones is known for his withering put downs, so if you have front row Milton Jones Tickets from StubHub, a word of advice is to keep your mouth shut, unless you want to incur the wrath of his razor-sharp tongue. You have been warned. As a star of panel shows and the niche comedy circuit in London, Milton has recently branched out into other countries and there is every chance that his tour will be coming to a theatre near you soon. He might look like a bit of a bozo but that is all part of the act, as one of the most intelligent comedians on the circuit, his one-man show has been winning rave reviews from respected critics.
Milton Jones, you've been gone for too long
Unlike many of his peers, Milton Jones came to the world of comedy from an unusual route, he is a quietly religious man who was first brought to prominence in church gigs. Yielding this, he got the sniff of it and went to the Edinburgh festival in 1996 where he promptly won that most illustrious prize in stand up: the Perrier award for best newcomer. His star has been rising ever since.
This is no one trick pony, he is comfortable with all manner of subject material from the global fruit trade to why millipedes only have 996 legs. He can also make gags out of seemingly impossible subjects like the ordering of the Bible and what happens to comedians when they retire. If you've only seen bits of Milton Jones on youtube and he is billed on a show near your hometown, why not take a chance? True, it is not for everyone but his sophisticated punning routine will bring a smile to those who appreciate wit as much as wisdom.
Milton has a slightly zany style which seems erratic but is actually very cute, the trademark mad professor hairdo is just a tease for what is to follow. He was also shortlisted for one-liner of the year with an existential query that puts lesser comedians to shame, with all due deference to his intellectual property: "If they make it illegal to wear the veil at work, beekeepers are going to be furious". The more you think about this, the more amusing it becomes, but you won't have time to ponder, the jokes come thick and fast. At StubHub you can find those Milton Jones tickets you're looking for, that is, if you're quick enough!
