January 1, Tragic Accident Claims Life of Comedian



Comedian Tony Knight, 54, tragically lost his life in a terrible accident at the Rock’&’Cars Festival in Lavaur, France in June. A family member told Fox News Digital that Knight was “fit, healthy, happy and had everything going for him.”

French media reports state a large tree branch fell on Knight and several others at the festival. Unfortunately, he was the only one who did not survive.

A GoFundMe page has been created by Joanne Allen, sister of Knight’s longtime partner, Hayley Wright. Allen describes the immense challenges Hayley faces, such as “arranging a funeral, covering hospital expenses, meeting police detectives, doctors and the mayor, visiting the accident site and sorting Tony’s estate, all while experiencing a crushing amount of grief and disbelief in a foreign country.”

Knight was not only a comedian but also a “Dog Listener,” assisting thousands of dog owners by resolving problem dog behaviors using simple, gentle techniques. Due to his expertise, he appeared on various television and radio programs.

His comedy set, ‘Mad Dogs and an Englishman,’ was performed in Australia and internationally. Knight was preparing to begin a series of shows in the U.K.
