Milton Jones And The Temple Of Daft (Phil McIntyre Entertainments)

By | Published on Tuesday 18 August 2015


You can always rely on Milton Jones to deliver absurd one-liners. This time the eccentric comedian has opted for the inclusion of an Indiana Jones-style story, and comes equipped with appropriate jungle clothing and props. The bizarre storytelling and hilarious puns still exist in this show, but unfortunately the narrative prevents him from firing out the abundance of quips that normally get the crowd roaring from start to finish. There are hysterical witticisms about the archaeologist he aspired to be, but other moments in ‘The Temple Of Daft’ are flat. There’s also an hilarious sketch that parodies Scottish independence – but don’t worry, unlike others, this independence skit really will make you chuckle.

Assembly Hall, until 21 Aug.
