The man they call 'Britain’s Funniest Milton' stars in his new show Thanks a Lot, Milton Jones! co-starring Tom Goodman-Hill (Mr Selfridge), Josie Lawrence (Who’s Line Is It Anyway?), Ben Willbond (Horrible Histories, Yonderland) and Dan Tetsell (Mongrels). Mention Milton Jones to most people and the first thing they think is ‘Help!’. And in this show he has decided to set himself up as a man who can help anyone anywhere - whether they need it or not. Because, in his own words - “No problem too problemy”. So when you’re close to the edge, then Milton can give you a push...
In the first of the complete six episodes, Milton has decided to become a wedding planner. But when a distraught bride comes to the door with the case of the vanishing groom-to-be, Milton is all set to help... In Part Two, when a new rail line threatens a tiny dormouse, Milton decides it’s time to put his foot down - carefully... In the next episode, when the local seafarers’ pub starts only serving coffee, there’s no denying it’s rum....The coffee, that is. So who better than Milton to sort it out...?
Part 4, and a friend who runs a B&B is in trouble - so it’s time for Milton to dust off those nylon sheets and let the sparks fly! After that, Milton is asked for help because there are ugly rumours about the local farm going too far with its GM crops. At least, that’s what the vegetables are saying. And in the final part, Milton is asked to help out with the local book festival because the townsfolk are too distracted by their smartphones to - sorry, what was I saying? Sorry, just got a text.
As always Milton Jones delivers the puns one after the other, well written & performed.
I loved it so so funny definitely recommend it everyone should know about this
Since the very world of Milton Jones I have been a little disapointed, but this is right back up there!
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Any additional comments?
I'm a big fan of Milton Jones, and have downloaded all his radio series. However, this just didn't make me laugh. I thought the humour very poor.
