Review

Tonight's host Andy Parsons introduces Milton Jones as "the master of the one liner". The wild-haired Jones has raised wordplay to the level of fine art, each gag constructed as lovingly as a crossword clue. He marches on stage wearing a loud shirt and a quizzical expression, declaiming with long pauses: "Somewhere… between murder... and suicide...there is a place called… Merseyside." A line he can only top with a joke about the pope and cats, which it takes the audience about five seconds to get.

Parsons himself delivers a well-tooled routine that's more political than you usually get on this show, but it works, even if Parsons always sounds like he's about to explode.

Summary

An evening of stand-up at London's Hammersmith Apollo. Andy Parsons is the man in charge, treating the audience to his own brand of humour, before introducing routines by fellow comedians Andrew Lawrence and Milton Jones, who share their light-hearted views on modern life.
