My name is Mr Punch. I’ve known Jon for forty odd years 'Man & Boy.' He is a second generation Punch & Judy Man and has performed, with my good self, in many varied venues across Europe and the UK.
We bring our show to all ages, including a 'street show', which we have performed for Lords & Ladies at London’s Claridges to a 60th Birthday party and many other diverse venues in between.
So, if its ENTERTAINMENT you require give us a call, if Jon’s not around ask for me, I'm the good looking one with the biggest nose!

Professor Philips' Punch & Judy, the show which has been seen at many seaside resorts and Gala Fetes and puppet festivals throughout the country.
Also a favourite at children’s parties and can cater for the full party with the addition of a magic show and balloon modelling with plenty of games if required. I have many years of performing the show.
In 1988 I won the title of best supporting character voices in the most promising young professor awards. Philip also specialises in a wide variety of marionette productions for more information look at my website.
