Milton Jones: How to be a have-a-go hero

Milton Jones explains why, should you ever encounter one, taking on a bank robber isn't as easy as it looks...

Milton Jones, GQ, 8th March 2014

Milton Jones stars in Thanks a Lot, Milton Jones! (still don't know if that exclam should be in the title, other than implied: it does a mild disservice to Jones in that he admittedly writes with exuberance and gag-a-heartbeat punning, but delivers with an unbeatable dryness). Milton, in this opener - happy Wednesday early-evening nights in the bath again for me, whew - launched a wedding business. Featuring a bride who looked the spit of Robert De Niro. It was a knowing joy to listen to the conniptions the writers had twisted themselves into to include references to I think every film in De Niro's oeuvre.

Radio Times review

The English language receives a shakedown as Milton Jones exercises his word play to left-field extremes that make Lewis Carroll seem tame. Sometimes it is a simple description - like calling a church "a huge stone refrigerator" - that sets his mind wandering. But when he starts playing with the sound and meaning of words, the fun really starts.

In this opening episode he decides to launch a wedding business, but for Jones a groom is someone who works with horses, not a husband-to-be. The comic and dramatic support from Tom Goodman-Hill, as Milton's long-suffering flatmate, is invaluable and there are some particularly fine moments in a running theme about the bride looking like Robert De Niro. Their attempts to work De Niro film titles into every conversation with her are superb.
