Comedian Cam Knight
Cameron Knight is an actor, presenter and comedian.
Cam started his journey as a performer at a very young age. By 12 he was performing in his school’s production of ‘Oliver’. He convincingly played a 70 something year old Jewish man (Fagin) with ease and from there he was hooked.
After studying acting in Adelaide, S.A. he moved to Melbourne to pursue a career. After some time spent in Melbourne he somehow ‘fell into’ doing stand up comedy and improvised comedy, which helped land him a support cast role in the Ch 7 sketch show ‘Big Bite’.
He’s not forgotten his acting roots and has appeared on ‘Blue Heelers’ twice (as the same character). The late Linda Gibson played his Mum. Recently he starred in a 15 minute short film called ‘What’s The Matter?’ directed by Lee Rogers. ‘What’s The Matter?’ had its world premiere at the LA Short Film Fest It also featured at the 2007 Flickerfest in Bondi Beach.
Cam has been happily working for Foxtel and The Comedy Channel for the last few years as a presenter. He’s hosted various shows including ‘Chain Reaction’, ‘We’ll Call You’, Hit & Run Series 2′, ‘The World Comedy Tour 2005’, ‘The FHM Lara Croft Challenge’, ‘Thank Comedy It’s Friday’, ‘Cam & Charlie’s Guide to the Festival’, and ‘Stand Up Australia’’ – a stand up show which showcases some of the best local and international acts around.
Now in its second series. Stand Up Australia airs five nights a week and at the end of each show Cam closes by saying ‘Touch It!’ which has somehow stuck…. Now, when he goes to get milk people yell at him to ‘touch it’!
He’s interviewed some of the best comics in the world during the Melbourne Comedy Festival from Demetri Martin to Mike Wilmot to Stephen K Amos as well as some of Hollywood’s finest like Wil Ferrel and John C Riley (if you look closely enough at the footage you can see Cam’s neck blush!). Cam continues to do stand up around Australia and loves every minute of it.
