Newman – Biography of the comedian

Rob Newman began performing comedy in the late 1980s as an impressionist, which led to him becoming a star after appearing on The Mary Whitehouse Experience (1989-92) alongside David Baddiel, Hugh Dennis, and Steve Punt. This TV and radio program was named for campaigner for “moral decency” on television, Mary Whitehouse. Due to the success of this programme, the comedic duo gained fame in the early 1990s with their own series called Newman and Baddiel in Pieces (1993).

Despite this partnership being celebrated in the media as ‘the new rock and roll’, there were reports that it was full of tension. Newman and Baddiel’s shows (on both TV and stage) featured them delivering different monologues rarely intersecting with each other except for sketches such as History Today.

Ultimately, tensions ended up escalating between them leading to one final show together at Wembley Arena during their Live and in Pieces tour before they parted ways.
