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.

The most famous sketch from the show is History Today. Newman & Baddiel play two old historians, who discuss an important historical issue in a very childish fashion.
