Jack Knox is the author of two bestselling humour books, Hard Knox: Musings from the Edge of Canada and Opportunity Knox: Twenty Years of Award-Losing Humour Writing, both based on his popular column at the Victoria Times Colonist and both long-listed for the Leacock Medal for Humour. A third book, On The Rocks With Jack Knox: Islanders I Will Never Forget, will be published in fall 2018. Knox’s career highlights include being blasted with blowhole spray by Luna the orca whale, interviewing a nude porn star, and getting a phone call from Barack Obama four days before the 2008 presidential election. In his spare time he performs in a rock ’n’ roll band with members of his Tour de Rock cycling team.
