Memorable catchphrases, characters and sketches...
JediPredator from Bradford, England
13 June 2006
Even though this sketch and stand up double act is over ten years old,
the gags are as true as they are today, for example, telling a teen to
'fight with their heads' so they translate it as 'nut them' is what
they'll literally do now.
The catchphrases are weird and wonderfully simple. With simple one word
repetitions such as "DAMN!" from 'Marty Martinson', to the ever so
peculiar "Milky, milky!", from 'Mr Strange'. Those, coupled with the
right voice, can instantly be catchy and can be used in the right
situation (there's also "I shall be sick as a dog in the morning!" for
when you've perhaps had that little too much to drink!) The (regular)
characters are equally extraordinary; there's Mr Strange (who loves his
milk!), the lazy decorator (who always favours his drink of tea, rather
than the job), plus the 'World Of Wine/Whisky/Vodka' presenters (one's
sober, one's drunk!) and of course, the business owners that swap a
fast food restaurant for a car hire (same hours, same locals, one
difference - slightly less oil and grease!).
To back up the regulars, the hosts contribute a running theme through a
particular episode, like a 50's style alien in human disguise doing
every-day things, or having words that sound like rude words (Bollards!
No, it's true!)
All in all, The Imaginatively Titled Punt & Dennis Show is one show to
be definitely watched.
