Hugh made his name as one half of Punt & Dennis. He and Steve Punt still appear together on Radio 4’s The Now Show, whilst Hugh also captains his team on Mock The Week, and stars in Outnumbered – the wonderfully inventive semi-improvised BBC sitcom.
After originally working as a brand manager for Unilever, Hugh turned a talent for impressions to better use and began to provide voices for Spitting Image. He then became a regular guest on the Jasper Carott Show and joined the team on the seminal stand up and sketch show The Mary Whitehouse Experience, which first aired on the radio before becoming a BBC2 hit.
Hugh and Steve starred in several peak time series of their own, including The Imaginatively Titled Punt & Dennis Show – and Me, You and Him. Hugh then went on to star alongside Ardal O’Hanlon in My Hero as well as a host of both comic and serious roles from New Tricks to Agatha Christie’s Marple, Not Going Out to Doctors.
