Johnny Fox – AKA BC Johnny – is a Brit living in Canada who’s happiest when all he has to do is read, write and run. Honing a career as a UK sports hack in his 20’s, Johnny headed back to school at 29 to earn a sports science degree. Which seemed like a good idea at the time. And now, majestically adorns his mum’s dining room wall. Since emigrating to Canada in 2006 he’s scratched a living as a freelance journalist. Now, recently turned 40, he’s decided dancing on destitution's lap ain’t what it’s cracked up to be. So he’s embarked on a comedy writing career, which he's sure will earn him millions. First in Italian lira, then dollars and pounds. He's now based in Canada's eastern quarter – where he continues to read, write and run. And fuel his addiction to chilled almonds.
