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 wrote the surrealist, partially biographical novel Where Do Comedians Go When They Die?: Journeys of a Stand-Up (2009).
Jones grew up in Kew, Surrey. 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 St Margarets, London, in Richmond upon Thames. He supports Arsenal FC.
