The Now Show is a radio comedy broadcast on BBC Radio 4, which satirises the week's news. It is a mixture of stand-up, sketches and songs presented by Steve Punt and Hugh Dennis. The pair shot to fame after working in The Mary Whitehouse Experience, and have since worked together in It's Been a Bad Week, The Party Line, and Mock the Week (Punt as a writer, and Dennis as a panelist). Through the years The Now Show has featured a host of other notable comedians as part of the cast or as guests, most prominently Jon Holmes, Marcus Brigstocke, and Sue Perkins.
The Now Show has been running on Radio 4 since September 1998. All 14 episodes from that first series can be found here. This is ideal for seasoned fans who want to see how it all started or for anyone who enjoys political satire. Although the show is topical, it dates well, as the material is as exhilarating and funny now as it was when first broadcast.
