Steve Punt is a British writer, comedian and actor, most famous for his long-time partnership with Hugh Dennis.

The pair met while at Cambridge University. Punt was a student of St. Catharine's College. They became resident guest comedians on shows presented by Jasper Carrott, including Carrott Confidential and Canned Carrott, and also toured with Carrott as a live support act.

They were then recruited in 1988, along with David Baddiel and Rob Newman to write and perform a satirical sketch and stand-up show called The Mary Whitehouse Experience on BBC Radio 1. After three years, the show had proved such a big hit that it transferred to television. Punt and Dennis went on to perform in their own TV sketch show, The Imaginatively Titled Punt & Dennis Show, and co-wrote and starred in the sitcom Me, You & Him.

Unlike his comedy partner Dennis, Punt has mostly done screenwriting and script editing for various BBC shows, television programmes and documentaries. His credits include The Rory Bremner Show, The Nearly Complete and Utter History of Everything, various episodes of Spitting Image and its retrospective documentary Best Ever Spitting Image, Baddiel's Syndrome and Horrible Histories.

On 3 January 2013 Punt appeared on Celebrity Mastermind. His specialist subject was Tony Hancock and his chosen supported charity was SANDS. Punt won the contest.

In 2016 Steve joined the cast of the 40th anniversary tour of The Rocky Horror Show where he played The Narrator, leading the audience through this iconic show and fielding their infamous heckles.

Punt has worked more as a writer, script editor and voice-over artist in recent years.

Punt & Dennis are also still the main presenters of Radio 4's ‘The Now Show’.
