One of Britain's comedy maestros Milton Jones headlined a special comedy festival at the Gatehouse Theatre, in Islington in July.
Fans enjoyed a raft of infamous side splitting quick fire jokes and brilliant one liners from Milton, beloved for long running hit Radio 4 comedy series, on July 9.
Milton, famous for his appearances on Mock the Week, Live at the Apollo, and Michael McIntyre’s Roadshow and Sorry I Haven’t a Clue, will appear alongside Sol Bernstein, Josh Howie and Andrea Hubert.
Jones, The Perrier Best Newcomer and Nominee and winner of two Sony Awards played in memory of his good friend, "long suffering" fellow Arsenal season ticket holder and renowned lawyer Julian Young.
Profits of almost £8000 helped raise funds for a Torah Scroll (Jewish Bible) for the only synagogue in Islington. The Torah Scroll will be dedicated in memory of Julian Young, compassionate lawyer for the community.
Milton said: "Julian was a nice man, who loved justice, laughing and Arsenal - 3 things that didn't always overlap "
Rabbi Mendy Korer, Rabbi of Islington, added: "It is an absolute honour to work with Milton Jones to help raise funds for the first Torah Scroll in Islington.
"The scroll will be dedicated in memory of Julian Young, a dear community member, who passed away in 2021. It was an evening of laughter and joy, thanks to everyone for joining."
Event organizer Judy Ramjeet added: " Julian was known as 'The Lawyer with Attitude' and was one of the kindest people with the biggest heart, whose raison d'être was to help others. Obtaining a Torah Scroll to benefit the whole borough of Islington, home of his beloved Arsenal, will be an apt tribute to Julian.
"While deeply missed by many, Julian's memory will live on in the Torah Scroll. He abided by those values throughout his life."
