Keith Knight

Keith Edgar Knight Jr. (born August 24, 1966) is an American cartoonist and musician known for his accessible yet subversive comic strips The K Chronicles, (Th)ink, and The Knight Life. While his work is humorous and universal in appeal, he also often deals with political, social, and racial issues. Woke, a television series based on his work, debuted in 2020.

 Knight was born in Malden, Massachusetts, and raised in the Boston area. Previously a resident of San Francisco, in 2007 he moved to Los Angeles. He is now based in the Research Triangle area of North Carolina.

 He is married to German-born illustrator Kerstin Konietzka-Knight, and they have two children; they appear as characters in The K Chronicles and The Knight Life. (The timeline of The Knight Life is about two years behind The K Chronicles.) Knight often pokes gentle fun at his wife's mangling of English idioms. Their first son is not referred to by name, but is sometimes referred to as "The Unbearable Cuteness of Being."

Knight's regular feature The K Chronicles, launched in the early 1990s, appears in various outlets, including Daily Kos, and previously appeared in the San Francisco Examiner, while (th)ink is published on several newspapers and websites, especially African-American sites. A syndicated daily strip, The Knight Life, was launched in 2008. Knight is also the artist for two strips appearing in Mad: Father O'Flannity's Hot Tub Confessions and Bully Baby.

 In the March 14, 2012, strip of The K Chronicles, Knight announced he was working on a graphic novel about his brief (1984–1985) career as a professional Michael Jackson impersonator. The book will be entitled I Was a Teenage Michael Jackson Impersonator. The book is scheduled to premiere at San Diego Comic-Con in July 2023.
