Grant Baciocco (born May 20, 1974) is an American puppeteer, actor, writer, and singer/songwriter.

Mr. Baciocco operated the Crow T. Robot puppet in the host segments for Turkey Day '14, Turkey Day '15, the Leaked 'Star Wars' Auditions short, and the Bring Back MST3K Marathon.

Grant acted as the primary operator of the Crow puppet for Season 11. He also operated and voiced M. Waverly in The Loves of Hercules. Later, he appeared as Terry the Bonehead in the Mystery Science Theater 3000 Live! - Watch Out for Snakes! Tour. He also did some supplemental puppeteering, including operating the Eegah head puppet and performing as M. Waverly. He subsequently performed as M. Waverly throughout Season 12, and also performed in the 30th Anniversary Live Tour.

It was initially announced that Grant would perform as Crow for some of the live shows as part of the Great Cheesy Movie Circus Tour, but that plan was changed and Grant did not appear in that tour. After the announcement that there would no additional seasons of MST3K produced for Netflix, Baciocco's potential involvement with any future MST3K projects is unclear.

Grant has identified The Crawling Eye, Manos: The Hands of Fate, Angels Revenge, and Prince of Space as among his favorite experiments from the Classic series.
