Early in his career, Austin Knight was firmly established as a regular support on the cabaret circuit and worked with the likes of Neil Sedaka, Bill Haley, Martha Reeves and many more during the halcyon seventies era, when the cabaret boom was in its heyday.
Towards the eighties, Austin developed a ”stand-up” act featuring topical news items of the day, a wry glance at life and also honed to perfection his now-famous ”Drunk Routine” which is much requested by audiences and organisers alike.
Having also written for TV & Radio, compiled scripts for Tommy Cooper, Les Dawson, and many more, Austin has also appeared in Coronation St, Krypton Factor, Sandbagger, Taggart, Fallen Hero, Crib the Detective, the list goes on and on.
Austin concentrates his time as an after-dinner comedian and is able to work either super clean or more adult, depending on what the audience requires.
