Milton Jones, Bournemouth Pavilion
TO SAY Milton Jones is odd is to do the man a disservice. The Kew-born, madly-haired, brightly-shirted, award-winning surrealist comedian, above, is way beyond odd.
His imaginings and flights of fancy, all encapsulated into remarkably concise and pithy one-liners are sometimes off the radar for weirdness.
However, on tonight's Lion Whisperer tour he was being relatively normal; 'relatively' being the key word.
Here we had gently bonkers Milton observing things most of us don't notice and slanting them into his funny lines, such as “Similies: What are they like?”.
It’s all clever stuff, particularly the pauses, “I was bullied at school..." (audience “ahhhh”) “...by pirates, you’re not really helping.”
The man who always brightens Mock The Week on TV hugely entertained a decent Pavilion audience, dealt cleverly, but not succinctly with particularly irritating heckler and showed himself to be a thoroughly nice chap.
It probably comes from his grandfather who, during the war when board games were banned, was a Yahtzee sympathiser.
