Steve Punt - Entertaining Speaker - Humorous Speaker - After Dinner Raconteur

Writer/performer of Radio 2's It's Been a Bad Week and  Radio 4's The Now Show. Steve first came to prominence on BBC2's The Mary Whitehouse Experience and BBC1's Punt and Dennis with long time performing and writing partner, Hugh Dennis. 

The extent of their writing credits have established them as the workhorses of British comedy.


As well as appearing on programmes such as LOOSE ENDS, THE MOTION SHOW and THE TREATMENT, he has contributed to many of the list shows such as  I LOVE THE 1980s on BBC 2, and has been on Have If Got News For You and Mock the Week  programmes for which he also writes.

His background writing for topical shows means that he is excellent at creating or adapting material to a specific brief.


"First class - the material was spot on, and combined industry references with topical comedy." Hugh and Steve spoke at the ABI Financial Media Awards
