Patrick "Pat" Proft (born April 3, 1947) is an American comedy writer and actor.

Proft was born in Columbia Heights, Minnesota, the son of Marguerite and Bob Proft. He began his career at Dudley Riggs' Brave New Workshop in Minneapolis. In the mid-1970s, he began writing for television and films. Proft's screenplays usually rely heavily on slapstick action, wisecracks and non-sequitur-laced absurdist dialogue.

He has written numerous films, but has only directed one, Wrongfully Accused, which starred Leslie Nielsen.
