Hugh Dennis and Steve Punt Set to Reunite for First Tour in a Decade with New Show We Are Not a Robot

Comedy duo Hugh Dennis and Steve Punt are set to reunite for their first tour in ten years with their new live show, We Are Not a Robot. The two are known for their work together on BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show, which aired for 25 years before ending earlier this year.

After meeting while supporting comedian Jaspar Carrott, the pair went on to create the satirical sketch show, the Mary Whitehouse Experience, and their own show, the Imaginatively Titled Punt and Dennis Show. Now, they are bringing their comedy back to the stage with a tour that will stop in Canterbury and Dartford in Kent.

Steve Punt, who has written for shows such as Would I Lie to You and Horrible Histories, says that live shows are the core of everything they do. This sentiment is echoed by Hugh Dennis, best known for his appearances on Outnumbered, Mock the Week, and Not Going Out.

The pair’s new stage show will feature many of their previous characters and running jokes from their time on the airwaves, including the memorable “Milky Milky” catchphrase from their character Mr. Strange. They also plan to bring back the hilarious Minister character who is constantly threatening to resign.

The Marlowe Theatre in Canterbury will host the duo on Tuesday, May 21, with tickets available for purchase online. The show will then move to the Orchard West Theatre in Dartford on Wednesday, May 22, with tickets also available online. For a full list of tour dates, visit the official website.
