Southern Baptist minister, humorist, television personality, and author. Nutt’s humor revolved around rural Southern Protestantism and earned him the title "The Prime Minister of Humor."

Raised in a family of devout Baptists, he was a licensed minister by the age of 9. Upon his university graduation, he married and served as youth minister in churches in Waco and Dallas. He attended Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, 1960-1964.

While serving as a minister, Nutt accepted speaking engagements. His speeches were blended with humor, and he was soon a semi-regular on The Mike Douglas Show. From 1979 until his death, he appeared regularly on Hee Haw, performing a 90–120 second improvisational routine. In 1981, he starred in a pilot for an NBC sitcom, The Grady Nutt Show, but the series never aired.

Nutt’s books include The Gospel According to Norton and an autobiography, So Good, So Far. He released several comedic records and a Southern Gospel album.

On 23 November 1982, he died in a plane crash. The Gospel Music Association established the Grady Nutt Humor award to excellence in Christian comedy. The Grady Nutt Endowment Fund at the University of Louisville is an annual prize for the most creative fine arts project.
