Punch and Judy

Punch and Judy is a Victorian traditional puppet show featuring Mr Punch and Judy, his wife.

The show is run with on puppeteer and has a series of short screens. The show comes from Italy and dates backs from the 16th century but was first recorded to have been in England in May 9, 1662 (Punch’s birthday).

Punch wears a brightly colored jester’s outfit. Punch is a hunchback with a hooked nose that almost meets his prominent chin. He carries a stick that he uses on the most of the other characters at his free will.

The original target audience were adults but then evolved into children’s entertainment.

Here is a playful but informative website dedicated to Punch and Judy.
