The Imaginatively Titled Punt & Dennis Show
) was a stand-up
show by comedians Steve Punt
and Hugh Dennis
. They were a double act
in The Mary Whitehouse Experience
, and they also featured in Canned Carrott
, so they had plenty of experience working together. Impressionists Alistair McGowan
and Ronni Ancona
were among the regular guests on the show. It only ran for two series, the second of which was more simply titled Punt and Dennis
It never quite reached the popularity of its predecessors, likely due to the pre-watershed timing of the show.
There were several character inventions in the sketches, such as "The Gullibles", who were always falling for scams. There were also spoofs from TV programs such as Baywatch and The X-Files.
The second series also featured performances by tribute bands, who impersonated groups like The Beatles and The Rolling Stones.
