Keith Knight

Gentleman Cartoonist & Creator of Woke (HULU)

Keith Knight is one of the funniest and most highly regarded cartoonists in America, and the creator of three popular comic strips: the Knight Life, (th)ink, and the K Chronicles. For nearly three decades, this multi-award-winning artist has brought the funny back to the funny pages with a uniquely personal style that’s a cross between Calvin & Hobbes, MAD, and underground comix.

Keith Knight is part of a  generation of  African-American artists who were raised on hip-hop, and infuse their work with urgency, edge, humor, satire, politics and race. His art has appeared in various publications worldwide, including  the Washington Post, Daily KOS, San Francisco Chronicle, Ebony, ESPN the Magazine, L.A. Weekly, MAD Magazine, and  the Funny Times .

His life and comics are the inspiration for the Hulu dramedy series, Woke, starring Lamorne Morris and Sasheer Zamata.  Much like Knight’s comics, the award-winning show uses satirical humor to address serious issues.
