Milton Jones on the Sunday Hangover show

It’s difficult to describe a household name as ‘on the up’ but on the Sunday Hangover show, we managed it.  

Comedian Milton Jones called in this week to tell us about his forthcoming tour, Lion Whisperer; the demand for which is such that he’ll shortly be announcing a whopping 20 extra dates;  pretty hot stuff for a comedian.


Add frequent appearances on Mock the Week and Michael McIntyre’s Roadshow, award winning radio comedy and the possibility of a sitcom (was that an exclusive revelation, Milton?) and perhaps this is a man on the cusp of national treasure status? 


So, aside from sell the hottest ticket in town, what does life sound like for Milton Jones right now?  To our ears, pretty ok.  Milton described how his growing TV presence has kids pointing at him in the street - at least he has an excuse now - and how mundane activities like eating sandwiches are becoming spectator sports.  But if the stresses of fame get too much, the comedians’ comedian can take comfort in kicking lumps out of fellow comics in his (highly competitive/questionable skill) games of football, with neighbours like Sean Meo and Stewart Francis.  If that isn’t an amazing sounding spectacle....


....go and see Milton.  He’s at the Colchester Arts Centre, on Saturday 5th March 2011.
