Hampton Yount (/jʌnt/, as in "blunt"; born June 14, 1984) is an American stand-up comedian, writer, and actor.

Yount was born in Virginia. From 2004 to 2012, he and his brother Clay produced a webcomic, Rob and Elliot, for the Boxcar Comics collective.[1] He first performed stand-up comedy in Blacksburg and Washington, D.C., later moving to Los Angeles.[2] His first experience in television was as a consulting producer and performer on Ridiculousness. He also made appearances on Conan and Last Comic Standing.

In 2012, Yount appeared as a guest on You Made It Weird with Pete Holmes.[3] In 2015, when Jonah Ray became host of the revived Mystery Science Theater 3000, he selected Yount to voice Crow T. Robot,[4] a role previously played by Trace Beaulieu and Bill Corbett.
