Steve Punt has been half of Punt and Dennis for many years, ever since Barry Punt left to pursue other projects and Steve happened to have the right surname.
He has co-hosted 45 series of The Now Show on Radio 4 since it started in 1998. Steve also presents the university quiz The Third Degree and the light-hearted investigative show Punt PI for Radio 4. TV writing/performing includes Canned Carrott, The Mary Whitehouse Experience, Punt and Dennis, Mock the Week and Horrible Histories.
In 2011 he played Eric Idle in BBC4's Holy Flying Circus. He has toured extensively with Hugh Dennis to theatres all over the country. His experience in musicals is frankly quite limited. He was once in a school production of The Yeoman of the Guard in which he played a Young Maiden of the Tower, but his voice broke half-way through rehearsals.
