A tradition in England is an act called 'Punch and Judy' which is a traditional, popular puppet show featuring Mr. Punch and his wife, Judy.  The performance is a sequence of short scenes between the two characters. It is often associated with classic English seaside culture. Lots of children and big audiences go to watch the Punch and Judy show (typically during the summer season) to enjoy the very humorous show! Punch and Judy has been around since the 16th century and is remembered by young and old.
