Robert Grant is an English comedy writer and television producer, who was born in Salford and studied Psychology at Liverpool University for two years.

In the mid-1980s, Grant collaborated with co-writer Doug Naylor on radio programmes such as Cliche and its sequel Son of Cliche, Wrinkles for Radio 4 and tv programs such as Spitting Image, The 10 Percenters, and various projects for Jasper Carrott.

The Grant Naylor collaboration, as it had become known, created the cult science-fiction comedy series, Red Dwarf, which evolved from Dave Hollins: Space Cadet, a recurring sketch within Son Of Cliché. Grant was briefly seen (uncredited) in an episode of Red Dwarf entitled Backwards (1989), as a man who 'un-smoked' a cigarette.

In the mid-1990s, the Grant Naylor collaboration was ended when Grant left Red Dwarf after the sixth series, citing creative differences ("... it was basically 'musical differences' ...") with Doug Naylor. His main reason however, he said, was that he 'wished to have more on his 'tombstone' than Red Dwarf on its own'.
