Eric Knight is the longest-playing vilifier in the cast and has been involved in the show longer than anyone except that jerk Tim. He’s been performing at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival since 1985, spending two decades in the puppet troupe before developing his current character of the Concierge. He joined the cast of Vilification Tennis in the mid-nineties, performing with the show at the Ren Fest since then, the MN Fringe Festival in 2007 and at the Bryant-Lake Bowl since Vil started there in December of 2007.
He spent much of the 90s on the Renaissance Festival circuit, often earning a “living” sewing professionally. He’s been involved in running Cinema Rex (the film room at CONvergence Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention) since it started in 1999.
Eric works as Production Manager of a local game publishing company. He lives in St. Paul with his cats Kanika, Panya and Destro.
