Dominic Knight (born 26 January 1977) is an Australian comedy writer, best known as a member of the Australian political satire comedy group The Chaser, as well as being an independent writer and former blogger for the Sydney Morning Herald. He, along with fellow Sydney university students Charles Firth, Julian Morrow and Craig Reucassel founded The Chaser newspaper, launched in May 1999.[1] Knight is also the brother of Australian painter Jasper Knight[2].

Knight was educated at Sydney Grammar School, where he met fellow Chaser members Chas Licciardello and Charles Firth.

He now works as a writer on The Chaser's War on Everything, an ABC television program which is written and performed by the members of The Chaser comedy group. Unlike his colleagues, Dominic rarely presents on the program on-screen but did do some cameo appearances throughout the first series: television credits include Chaser News Alert and his role as a reporter for two series of CNNNN. He also contributed to the commentary track for the second volume of The Chaser's War on Everything DVD.

During January 2007, he acted as Triple M's drive time summer fill-in along with Chaser colleague Chas Licciardello. Their show, Chas and Dom from 'The Chaser', aired between 4pm and 6pm on weekdays from 2 to 25 January, and often included guest appearances from their Chaser colleagues.[3]

Knight also writes for the Sydney Morning Herald, contributing opinion pieces[4], wrote for the now defunct liftout Radar[5], and blogged on the 2007 New South Wales election campaign.[6]

In September 2007, Knight was questioned by police, alongside fellow Chaser members Chris Taylor and Craig Reucassel after they strapped on cardboard cars (limousines) and "drove" around Sydney in the wake of Chas and Julian's arrest for entering a restricted zone without justification during the APEC Summit.

In 2008, Knight toured Australia as part of the Chaser team's stage show, The Chaser's Age of Terror Variety Hour.

Novel

In May 2009, Knight's debut novel, Disco Boy, was published by Random House[7].
