Doug Knott, who grew up in West Palm Beach, endures a childhood of abuse by his alcoholic father. To spite his father, Doug declares he will be the Last of the Knotts.

   He embarks on a carefree life to avoid carrying on the family name. Set in lively, permissive 1980’s Los Angeles, this semi-autobiographical “comi-tragedy” shadows Doug’s search for redemptive love with an exotic cocaine dealer who keeps a pet 7-foot boa constrictor. When she unexpectedly gets pregnant, her desire to have a child provokes a conflict, and Doug must choose fatherhood....or Knott.

   Doug, a published poet and self-proclaimed hipster, wrote and performs this honest story about his avoidance of fatherhood as a result of the pain his father’s abuse inflicted on him. It is pregnant with laughs, squirms, and the comic and painful truth of life.

Last of the Knotts was selected "Best of the Fest" at the 2011 Hollywood Fringe Festival; it was a “Critic’s Choice” of the L.A. Times in March 2013; and the L.A. Weekly gave it a “GO” in 2012.
