Professor Kevin j Hargrave has been Swazzling his Punch and Judy Shows to the young and old alike for over 20 years, during these years his shows have taken him the length and breadth of Great Britain performing at Birthday parties, Weddings, Christening’s, Fetes, Fun day’s, and even on BBC television's the 60 minute makeover programme, and that popular tv series Doc Martin. Whilst performing at Port Isaac Cornwall Mr Punch met Caroline Quentin filming for her TV series.

In 1995 he took his Fit-up to St Paul’s Church in Covent Garden to perform at Punch’s birthday celebration resulting in being invited to become a member of the Punch and Judy Fellowship and the privilege of being endowed with the title of Professor.

Punch and Judy continues to thrive despite the X box and the Wii probably because of its versatility and the interaction it encourages with it’s audience, He has never done the same show twice and it’s not because he has forgotten his lines, it’s usually an excitable little person in the audience responding to some action or phrase in the show then he has to adlib and change the routine slightly to accommodate their response, and it’s this unknown factor that keeps the show exciting and alive.
