Milton Hywel Jones (born 16 May 1964) is an English comedian. His style of humour is based on one-liners involving puns delivered in a deadpan and slightly neurotic style. Jones has had various shows on BBC Radio 4 and is a recurring guest panellist on Mock the Week. He won the Perrier comedy award for best newcomer in 1996. Jones tours the UK periodically and is a regular performer at The Comedy Store in London and Manchester.
Jones grew up in Kew, London, his father is from South Wales. He attended Middlesex Polytechnic, gaining a diploma in dramatic art in 1985. He is married with three children and lives in Twickenham, London. Jones is a Christian, and has expressed frustration with atheist comedians.
Milton Jones became patron of the international Christian children's charity Chance for Childhood (formerly Jubilee Action) in May 2014. He has travelled to remote rural parts of Northern Uganda to support his work as patron and written blogs about his experiences such as "Something to Smile About, One Act of Kindness at a Time" and "If you give a man a loan you feed him an incentive".
