Top stand-up adds Scottish dates to tour

A star of BBC’s comedy panel show ‘Mock The Week, BBC Radio 4, ‘Live at the Apollo’, household favourite, king of the one-liner and one of the UK’s biggest selling comedians Milton Jones has added an extra 35 dates to his continuing ‘Milton: Impossible’ tour across tjos October and November.

One man. One Mission. Is it possible? No, not really.

Complete with his unique style and eccentric shirts, Milton will reveal the truth behind having once been an international spy, and then being given a somewhat disappointing new identity which forced him to appear on Mock The Week (BBC Two), Live at the Apollo (BBC One), Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow (BBC One) and even headline on Dave’s One Night Stand (Dave). This is a love story with a twist, or at least a really bad sprain. Is it all just gloriously daft nonsense, or is there a deeper meaning? Every man has his price. Sainsbury’s, where good food costs less.

Milton said: “We’ve all been through a lot recently, so why not go through a little bit more? Milton Impossible is a show about my career as a spy. Some people say that they really love it, others that can’t believe the sheer number of stupid jokes in it, and one old man in Bolton said, ‘It’s just what we need at the moment’.

None of them said these things to me directly, but I still own a lot of powerful listening equipment.

"We’re adding a load more shows in the autumn of 22. Obviously, I will know if you pass this on or not...”

Extra dates have been added for several Scottish venues in October, including at Dundee's Caird Hall and The Tivoli Theatre in Aberdeen.

Tickets are on sale now and are available from

Milton’s last sell-out tour, ‘Milton Jones Is Out There’, was seen by more than 100,000 people, with an entire leg of extra shows added to cater to demand, underlining his position as one of the UK and Ireland’s most popular comedians.

In addition to his highly successful stand-up appearances, he has also co-written and performed in 13 of his own radio series for BBC Radio 4 and in 2012 ‘Another Case of Milton Jones’ won the Silver Sony Award for Best Comedy.

He is currently in the process of writing his 14th radio series.

An award-winning performer, among Milton’s accolades are the Perrier Best Newcomer Award, and he is the winner of two Sony Awards, a Writers’ Guild Award nominee and his radio show, ‘Very World of Milton Jones’, was nominated for a British Comedy Award.

Milton has also released three hugely successful live DVDs - ‘Milton Jones – The Universe Tour. Part One – Earth’, ‘Milton Jones Live, The Lion Whisperer’ and ‘On the Road’.
