The Mary Whitehouse Experience
Topical TV comedy show based on the radio series of the same name. Starred double acts Punt & Dennis and Newman & Baddiel
The Mary Whitehouse Experience was a topical comedy show starring David Baddiel, Robert Newman, Hugh Dennis and Steve Punt. It began on radio in 1988, before transitioning to television in 1990. The show mixed stand-up comedy monologues with sketches and impressions.
Our Review: The Mary Whitehouse Experience is quite frankly a brilliant comedy programme. Even today, from the biting opening theme, to the sketches themselves, this show feels on the cutting edge. One of the best comedy programmes of the 1990s, and one that launched the careers of four very talented comedians.
