Dominic Knight was one of the founders of The Chaser satirical newspaper in 1999, and also one of its destroyers in 2004 after the group finally acknowledged that it would never turn a profit.
Since then he’s been involved in most of the team’s projects in print, stage, radio, television, online and in court. Most notably he has worked on ABC-TV’s The Hamster Wheel, Yes We Canberra! and various election specials. Most notoriously, he worked on The Chaser’s War On Everything.
His first novel Disco Boy (2009) portrayed the career travails of a disaffected law graduate suspiciously like himself, and its successor Comrades (2010) delved into the grubby world of student politics. His third novel, Man vs Child, was released in 2013, and was produced as part of his Doctor of Arts degree at the University of Sydney.
In 2017, Dominic released Strayapedia, a book devoted to the ironic and non-ironic celebration of his homeland. He will follow it in 2018 with Trumpedia, which will in no way celebrate the current US president. He has also written columns for Daily Life, the Sydney Morning Herald, Cleo, SBS Life and The Drum.
From 2012, Dominic hosted Evenings on ABC Radio Sydney and across NSW and the ACT. He left in April 2016, but thereafter presented other programmes, including a stint on Nightlife after Tony Delroy retired. He currently presents Radio Chaser on Triple M.
Dominic lives in Sydney with his wife, daughter, dog and neuroses.
