Milton Jones has a very love it or hate it style of comedy, mainly revolving around puns and wordplay, which he gets a lot of mileage out of, and if you know his work you'll probably already know which side of the fence you are on: I for one love his humour. It's easygoing, undemanding, and sometimes even clever. This series revolves around Milton's imminent death from an impending disaster- a different one each time and a Fairy Godmother type showing him his life, with a ton of nonsensical reminiscences, running gags and daft one liners. If you like surreal humour this has lots of value across its 6 episodes. Highly recommended.

Not such a fluid Milton
What did you like best about The Very World of Milton Jones? What did you like least?
The odd one-liners that Milton is known for
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
Simply stick to stand up rather than use a 1950s radio format
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
Not a lot to be honest. I'd never heard his radio show and found it slow-paced and quite unfunny in parts. Seemed a bit old fashioned
If this book were a film would you go see it?
Any additional comments?
I think Milton Jones is one of the funniest and inventive comedians on the circuit. Clearly this radio show was not designed for me and I didn't enjoy it. 'll stick to his stand up
