Mil­ton Jones in arena out there

Southport Visiter - - What’s On -

MIL­TON Jones Is Out There. No, re­ally out there, and that’s not just be­cause of his flam­boy­ant taste in shirts.

Fol­low­ing on from his hugely suc­cess­ful 2015 tour Mil­ton Jones And The Tem­ple Of Daft, which con­sisted of 170 dates around the UK play­ing to more than 100,000 peo­ple, the one-liner king has an­nounced a brand new tour – Mil­ton Jones Is Out There – for 2017.

The show is his man­i­festo of non­sense, tak­ing a philo­soph­i­cal look at his life so far and his thoughts on giv­ing this all up to seek the high­est of­fice in the land – but how do you get a desk and a swivel chair up a moun­tain?

With Mil­ton run­ning for Prime Min­is­ter, he poses the ques­tion: can we re­ally do worse than the politi­cians we al­ready have? Yes, we can. We’ll see Mil­ton hold­ing up the mir­ror of truth to so­ci­ety, and he can see right through it, which prob­a­bly means it’s just a win­dow.

He’ll also be putting his foot down and lift­ing the lid on the me­dia’s pedal bin of lies and scal­ing the heights of fash­ion, at the risk of fall­ing into a ter­ri­ble cra­vat.

Packed full of hi­lar­i­ous and ex­pertly crafted puns, this show is a must for the whole fam­ily.

Mil­ton says: “I’m ex­cited to be back ‘ out there’ on the road and dis­cussing my life so far – the ups, the downs and why buy­ing my own see­saw was the best de­ci­sion I ever made.”

A reg­u­lar pan­elist on Mock The Week (BBC Two) and with 10 of his own ra­dio series for BBC Ra­dio 4, in­clud­ing most re­cent com­mis­sion Thanks A Lot Mil­ton Jones!, Mil­ton has also re­cently ap­peared on Alan Davies: As Yet Un­ti­tled (Dave), Live at the Apollo (BBC Two) and Live at the Pal­la­dium (ITV).

Mil­ton Jones Is Out There comes to the ECHO arena, Liver­pool, on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 1.

Tick­ets cost £29.50 plus £2.55 ful­fil­ment fee per or­der and are avail­able from www. echoarena.com or by call­ing 0844 8000400.

Mil­ton Jones will bring his lat­est show – and shirts – to the ECHO arena in Liver­pool
