MILTON JONES in MILTON: IMPOSSIBLE
One man. One Mission. Is it possible? No, not really.
Phil McIntyre Entertainments are delighted to announce a brand new tour from Milton Jones - star of Mock The Week (BBC Two), BBC Radio 4 and Live at the Apollo (BBC One), household favourite, king of the one-liner and one of the UK’s biggest selling comedians. Milton Jones in Milton: Impossible will take in 49 dates across the UK in 2020.
Complete with his unique style and eccentric shirts, Milton will reveal the truth behind having once been an international spy, and then being given a somewhat disappointing new identity which forced him to appear on Mock The Week (BBC Two), Live at the Apollo (BBC One), Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow (BBC One) and even headline on Dave’s One Night Stand (Dave). This is a love story with a twist, or at least a really bad sprain. Is it all just gloriously daft nonsense, or is there a deeper meaning? Every man has his price. Sainsbury’s, where good food costs less.
Milton Jones said: “My latest show is called Milton: Impossible and is loosely based on a Tom Cruise film I saw once called something like Undo-able Task. In it I play a Milton who appears to just have a job in Asda, but at night he's also an international spy involved in secret things and quite bad situations. In a world where shopping trolleys collide, one man can bring everything together - all he needs is some pound coins. But if daft jokes give you an allergic reaction and send you into a coma, then don’t come running to me! Also, at a difficult time for our country, I believe there's a chance this show could unite the nation. Admittedly quite a small chance.”
“He’s fast, absurd and very Funny” Radio Times
“No-one can touch Jones when he hits his stride” The Guardian

An Evening with Lenny Henry: Who Am I, Again?
Following the October publication of his memoir, Lenny will travel the length, breadth and width of the country
In part one of the show, Lenny will take the audience through a jam session of stories both funny and sad - triggered when writing his memoir - from growing up in the Black Country, puberty, school, friendship, family secrets and unashamed racism. With his mother's mantra of 'H'integration' echoing in his ears, Lenny will recount setting out on his roller coaster ride of a career - but at every stage wondering: Am I good enough? Is this what they want?
In part two, Lenny will be interviewed by friend, broadcaster and author Jon Canter, for further insights into his life and career, followed by questions from the audience. Come and enjoy these honest and tender stories, told with a glorious sense of humour and help Lenny figure out ‘Who Am I Again?'
Lenny said: “I’m looking forward to travelling around and telling these stories. Writing the book was a huge feat and I’m very proud of it - I can’t wait to share more stories and fun about growing up in the Midlands, my early days in the clubs, pubs and discotheques and of course working on Tiswas, Three of a Kind and The Lenny Henry Show. The show promises to be an evening of memories, laughter and fun - I can’t wait to get started.”
Lenny Henry has been a comedian since the age of 16. He has risen from being a cult star on children's television to one of Britain's best-known and most celebrated comedians, as well as a writer, radio DJ, TV presenter, co-founder of Comic Relief, and an award-winning actor. Henry has a PhD in Media Arts, and in 2015 was awarded a knighthood for services to charity and drama. His autobiography, also entitled Who Am I, Again? is published by Faber & Faber on 3 October 2019.
