It’s a side-splitting tale of a madcap journey as Milton follows in the footsteps of his great-uncle (who er… looks suspiciously like Milton).

Unlike previous shows it’s a story, but there are still lots and lots of ridiculous gags as well as the trademark multi-coloured shirts and big hair.

Expect playful props, silly sound effects and if the first leg of the tour is anything to go by, lashings of laughs.

If you liked the Mock the Week star’s most recent radio show, Thanks a Lot Milton Jones! (BBC Radio 4) and the stuff he’s done on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow (BBC One), Live at the Apollo (BBC One), Dave’s One Night Stand (Dave) or the other ten radio series he has had commissioned for BBC Radio 4, then you will love his new hits, as he cranks up his joke jukebox once more.
