Spit-your-coffee-out funny

October 05th, 2022

Victoria’s funny man, Jack Knox has released his fourth collection of comedic stories about the absurdities of island living, Fortune Knox Once: More Musings from the Edge (Heritage House $22.95). His first two titles in the series, all based on the humour columns he wrote for the Times Colonist newspaper for more than 25 years, Hard Knox: Musings from the Edge of Canada (Heritage House, 2016) and Opportunity Knox: Twenty Years of Award Losing Humour Writing (Heritage House, 2017) were both longlisted for the prestigious Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour. Clearly Knox can write laugh-out-loud stories. Fellow writer, Susan Lundy advises Knox readers to be prepared for sudden “spit-your-coffee-out” snorts of laughter. Knox’s new material covers such topics as: the sexiness of the Canadian accent, the lost art of handwriting, the Rogue Cow of Metchosin, ugly trucks, ugly people, a parody of end-of-school announcements, and a letter to Prince Harry. 9781772034172
