People who knew and loved the comedian shared their sadness on social media about his death.

“I’m sorry to hear about Tony Knight. Things like this are always hard to hear about. It’s important to remember how much laughter and joy he brought to so many people with his comedy, someone wrote on Facebook.

Tony “helped people all over the world” learn how to interact with their furry friends through different means, Hayley’s sister wrote on GoFundMe about the side job.

She also said that he was about to teach well-known dog classes all over Europe before his sudden death.

The Washington, DC native’s most recent show, Mad Dogs and an Englishman, was a huge hit all over Australia and other countries.

Tony was also an actor, as shown on his IMDB page. He was in The Legend of Awesomest Maximus (2011), The Saxon Chronicles (2006), and Unicorn City (2012).

Though the Englishman was legally living in Australia, he has spent the last four years living with his partner Hayley on her family farm in Beaufort. They have been together for more than 15 years.

It is said that Hayley wants to spread Tony’s ashes in France.
