A STAR from the BBC’s Mock The Week and Live at the Apollo is set to bring his tour to Galashiels.

“King of the one-liner”, Milton Jones is taking his Milton: Impossible tour to the Borders this autumn with a show at Galashiels Volunteer Hall in October.

The event from Live Borders and Phil McIntyre Live Ltd., will bring Jones’s “unique style” and “eccentric shirts” to the region, as he reveals to audiences his past career as an international spy.

Jones said: “We’ve all been through a lot recently, so why not go through a little bit more?

“Milton: Impossible is a show about my career as a spy.

“Some people say that they really love it, others that can’t believe the sheer number of stupid jokes in it, and one old man in Bolton said, ‘It’s just what we need at the moment’ (None of them said these things to me directly, but I still own a lot of powerful listening equipment).

“We’re adding a load more shows in the autumn of 22.”

One of the UK’s top comedians, Jones’s last sell-out tour, Milton Jones is Out There, was seen by more than 100,000 people, with extra dates added to accommodate demand.

Tickets for Milton: Impossible at Galashiels Volunteer Hall on Friday, October 14 at 7.30pm, are on sale now.

Tickets are £27.50 and can be bought from www.liveborders.org.uk
