All for fun and fun for all

Hi, I’m Brighton's Punch and Judy man -  Prof. Glyn Edwards - often imitated but never equalled. I've been a Punch and Judy performer for over 50 years and taken my show all over the UK as well as to Russia, America, Japan and a host of other countries.

When it comes to Mr. Punch and our uproarious National Puppet Show, I've performed it, taught it, written books about it and broadcast about it.

I’ve been dubbed a “Punch and Judy Rock Star’ – although it’s Mr. Punch who is the charismatic crowd pleaser. I’m just his sidekick.

I saw Mr. Punch for my very first time under the West Pier in the 1940s and first performed myself on Brighton beach in the 1960s. I have ‘Brighton Punch and Judy’ running through me like the writing through a stick of Brighton rock.



There are three generations of Brighton seaside entertainers in my family. My parents were seafront entertainers in Brighton in the 1930s and my daughter is a Brighton Punch and Judy Prof too.

Brighton and Mr. Punch have gone hand in hand for nearly two hundred years and we’re delighted to be carrying on the tradition on such a historic pitch.

Come and see us on the beach or book a school’s performance. We also give talks and demonstrations to all age groups.

The Original World Famous Brighton Beach Punch & Judy Show is available for event hire by special arrangement. Beware of imitations.



In 2018 you'll find us back again outside the new West Pier Centre at the foot of the i360

The Centre is where Punch & Judy also host schools visits to explore seaside heritage. 

Meanwhile don't forget you can book Mr. Punch
for your public event

He also makes visits to schools with a special 'Oh We Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside' session.
