Punt and Dennis

Steve Punt and Hugh Dennis are a long running sketch comedy duo, stars of BBC Radio 4's The Now Show and It's Been a Bad Week (BBC Radio 2). They first found fame as one half of legendary cult sketch show 'The Mary Whitehouse Experience' before going onto a sketch show from 1994-1995 called The Imaginatively Titled Punt and Dennis Show. Since then their reputations as both writers and performers have grown enormously. In 2007 they performed a UK tour of their comedy called Stuff and Nonsense. In 2011 they toured 'They Should Get Out More' and in 2014 they embarked on a new UK comedy tour called 'Ploughing on Regardless'. Their brand of sharp satirical comedy can currently be enjoyed on BBC2's Mock The Week, where Steve is a principal writer and Hugh appears regularly as a guest panellist. Steve is a widely acclaimed comedy and screenwriter and Hugh has starred in acclaimed sit coms Outnumbered, Not Going Out, and Fleabag.

"A trademark of quality comedy"
The Times

"A smart satirical partnership.., equipped with a 'sixth sense' which enables them to pre-empt each other's gags, they make for an appealing double act"

"The kings of satirical comedy"
The Guardian
