  • Thanks a Lot, Milton Jones!: Complete Series 4

  • The man they call 'Britain's Funniest Milton' and the genius in the mad shirts in "Mock The Week" stars in the fourth series of Thanks A Lot, Milton Jones! co-starring Tom Goodman-Hill (Mr Selfridge, Humans), Josie Lawrence (Who's Line Is It Anyway?), Ben Willbond (Ghosts, Yonderland), Dan Tetsell (Upstart Crow) & Colin Hoult (Russell Howard's Good News).

    Mention Milton Jones to most people and the first thing they think is 'Help!'. And in this show he has decided to set himself up as a man who can help anyone, anywhere - whether they need it or not. Because, in his own words - "No problem too problemy". So when you're close to the edge, then Milton can give you a push...

    The show comes from Pozzitive, proud producers of Cabin Pressure, Jeremy Hardy Speaks To The Nation, The Brig Society, Armando Iannucci's Charm Offensive, Shush! & Kevin Eldon Will See You Now...

    In the first episode - "Police, Camera, Milton!" - there is high drama in the line of duty when Milton is asked to form a Police Corruption Unit and takes it a little too literally...

    In Episode 2, "The Art Dealer", Milton's attempt to become an international Art Dealer leads to a deadly brush with danger...

    In the third episode, ("The Theatrical Impresario"), the curtains are up, and Milton's got nothing to hit but the people from the rival theatre who are trying to destroy his theatrical dreams...

    In Episode 4- "The Eco Worrier" - Milton goes under the sea to save the earth and stumbles across a mysterious Great Aunt at the same time, while Anton gets his fingers burnt by an old flame.

    In the fifth episode, "The Petsman", Milton turns to social media to calm things down when dog and cat owners go to war... because that usually works, right?

    ... And in the final episode, "The Cruiseman", Milton thinks his luck is in when he unexpectedly wins a luxury cruise. But who would want him out of the way? Apart from everyone, that is...

    "Milton Jones is one of Britain's best gagsmiths with a flair for creating daft yet perfect one-liners" - The Guardian.

    "King of the surreal one-liners" - The Times

    "If you haven't caught up with Jones yet - do so!" - The Daily Mail"

Paul Merton (Author, Reader) Paul Merton was born in 1957, long before such things were fashionable. He spent his first eight years living within cheering distance of Fulham Football ground at Craven Cottage although he can’t remember any cheering. Upon leaving school with two ropey A Levels and a CSE Grade 5 Maths, Paul enlisted in the Civil Service where he survived for two and a half years. He made his stand-up debut at London’s Comedy Store in 1982 where his policeman on acid routine regularly stopped the show. In 1985 he joined the Comedy Store Players, an improvised comedy group which led, in 1988, to him appearing on Whose Line is it Anyway? for the first few series before he couldn’t stick it anymore. He has appeared on Have I Got News For You as a team captain since 1990 and is also proud of his other long running gig, Radio 4’s Just a Minute. Other TV highlights include his eponymous surreal sketch series from 1991-3; interviewing Spike Milligan in what was to be his last major television appearance as host of Room 101; and making several programmes about early cinema, including The Birth Of Hollywood which he co-wrote with his wife, Suki Webster. He still performs with the Comedy Stores Players every Sunday.
