Steve Punt and Hugh Dennis present a mix of stand-up, sketches and songs. A typical episode features satirical comment on the week's news from Dennis & Punt (with voices from Laura Shavin), letters and emails read out by Jon Holmes and music from Mitch Benn.

Marcus Brigstocke used to have a regular stand-up spot on the show, but with his busy schedule the stand-up section of the show is now normally delivered by a guest comedian.

Jon Culshaw normally acts as guest presenter when one of the hosts can't make it. For example Hugh Dennis was absent from Series 41.
