The event will be held at Stevenage Arts and Leisure Centre on Saturday June 20 from 7.30pm.

He has been entertaining crowds across the globe with his unique brand of adult humour for almost 55 years.

Jones performed over ten shows every week, achieving the feat of performing more than 1,000 shows in two years during the 70s and 80s.

He was one of the original comics in the TV series The Comedians. The show introduced many of today’s household name comedians into the business, including Jim Davidson. For this reason, fellow comics often refer to Jones as ‘The Guv’nor’.

He is still widely regarded as one of Britain’s most successful live comedians. Outrageous, outspoken and truly hilarious, he’s back by popular demand and will be supported by local award winning group Spacegoat.

Tickets cost £20. Call the box office on 01438 363200 or visit for tickets.

Money raised will be donated to Transitions who help young people.
