MILTON JONES specialises in wild hairstyles and one-liners involving puns delivered in a deadpan and slightly neurotic style.
According to the Radio Times, “the wild-haired Jones has raised wordplay to the level of fine art”, and his idiosyncratic style has seen him appear on Mock the Week, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, and Live at the Apollo, while Jones’s last two solo tours have seen him play to more than 100,000 people.
Galway will have a chance to see just what has made the Englishman a Sony Award winner and a nominee for both the Writers Guild Award and Perrier Best Newcomer award, when he plays the Róisín Dubh tomorrow at 10pm as part of the Galway International Arts Festival.
The comedian, who also wrote the surrealist, semi-biographical novel Where Do Comedians Go When They Die?: Journeys of a Stand-up (2009 ), will be supported by Colm O’Regan and Karl Spain.
