Milton Jones and The Temple of Daft – The Lowry, Salford

Reviewer: Lauren Maughan Milton Jones is a man famous for his one-liners. And if you like a good pun, then this show is for you. It’s jam-packed with a few classics you’ll have heard before, along with some new gags that are comedy genius. Not your average stand-up show, The Temple of Daft is Indiana Jones meets comedy. Through the ...

David Callaghan: No Momentum – The Free Sisters, Edinburgh

You can see why David Callaghan picks this as his starting point: a Fringe year of glory two years ago ; followed by its opposite last year.

Milton Jones: On The Road – Symphony Hall, Birmingham

Reviewer: Karen McCandless [Rating:3] It’s not often that a comedian’s grandfather steals the show. Well Milton Jones’s “grandfather” did just that. Warming up the audience for Jones’ support act, the comedian’s turn as his own grandfather probably got more applause and a better reaction than either him or his support act. Coming in on a scooter, Jones shows that he ...

Milton Jones: On the Road – The Lowry, Salford

Reviewer: Jo Beggs [Rating:4.5] No wonder Milton Jones keeps getting invited back by the BBC. I’ll bet they wish there were more out there just like him – intelligent, clean and consistently funny. And there’s no surprises in Jones’s stand up show – you get just what you expect: quick wit and sharp delivery – an hour of flawless, sophisticated ...
