Milton Jones, a comic famous for his one-liner, deadpan style of humour, is in Blackpool tonight.

A man who has become a household name since appearing on TV shows like Mock the Week, Comedy Roadshow and Live At the Apollo will be at Blackpool’s Grand Theatre (call the venue on 01253 743339 to check availability).

Jones is also looking to seeing a little more of the town in this visit. He played here on his last tour but only saw the inside of the venue.

“We didn’t get chance to look around the place,” he said. “It was between other tour dates, so it was a quick visit and it was in the bleak midwinter.

“I do remember the audience was lovely.

“I hope we might get more chance to look around this time.”

Asked what people can expect from tonight’s performance, Jones said: “If you’re the kind of person who takes the kids to the panto and laughs at all the silly lines, then this is the show for you. I think my last DVD was a U certificate, so it’s fully accessible for most people.”

Jones isn’t the only funnyman in these parts this week. Bill Bailey has two shows lined up at the Grand on Friday and Saturday. Again check the theatre’s website for tickets.
