About the show
Mention Milton Jones to most people and the first thing they think is ‘Help!
King of the one-liners Milton Jones returns BBC to Radio 4 for an amazing 10th series in a new format where 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”.
But each week, Milton, and his trusty assistant Anton (played by Milton regular, Tom Goodman-Hill) set out to help people and soon find they’re embroiled in a new adventure. So when you’re close to the edge, then Milton can give you a push...
“Milton Jones is one of Britain’s best gagsmiths with a flair for creating daft yet perfect one-liners” – The Guardian.
“King of the surreal one-liners” - The Times
“If you haven’t caught up with Jones yet – do so!” – The Daily Mail
Written by Milton with James Cary (“Bluestone 42”, “Miranda”), and Dan Evans (who co-wrote Milton’s Channel 4 show “House Of Rooms”) the man they call “Britain’s funniest Milton,” returns to the radio with a fully-working cast and a shipload of new jokes.
The cast includes regulars Tom Goodman-Hill ( “Spamalot”, “Mr. Selfridge”), Dan Tetsell (“Newsjack”) and Ben Willbond (“Horrible Histories”) - and features the one and only Josie Lawrence working with Milton for the first time!
