A skilled impressionist, Hugh Dennis did voices for Spitting Image and appeared with comedy partner Steve Punt as resident support comics on two TV series hosted on the BBC by Jasper Carrott.
The pair then formed half of The Mary Whitehouse Experience on BBC Radio 1, later graduating to a television series. His radio work with Punt includes over a decade of performing Punt and Dennis, It's Been a Bad Week and The Now Show and a current run of writing The Party Line (a topical political satire that is written and performed the day prior to transmission). On The Now Show he is in a line up including Punt, Mitch Benn, Laura Shavin, Jon Holmes and Marcus Brigstocke.
Dennis has performed on various TV and radio shows, including Mock the Week, The Imaginatively Titled Punt and Dennis Show, New Tricks in the episode "Fresh Start", Outnumbered and sitcom Me, You and Him. He has guest hosted Have I Got News For You and played obnoxious GP Piers Crispin in BBC sitcom My Hero. He is friends with Chris Morris and has had cameos on Brass Eye.
Since August 2007, Dennis has starred in the BBC comedy Outnumbered, a semi-improvised sitcom based around family life.
Hugh is a regular panelist on Mock The Week and has appeared in every episode. He has several running jokes on the series such as repeated references to Showaddywaddy with a Jimmy Saville impersonation and often using the phrase from UK TV adverts "Are you paying too much for your car insurance?" in the segment "Scenes We'd Like To See". He also does voice-overs on political or royal videos from the week.
