Mt. Olive resident Bryan Knox will soon be appearing on Comedy Central. The American Dream is alive and well. Thanks to YouTube, anyone can be a star, just ask Bryan Knox. Knox, was the 2007 International Auctioneer Championship Grand Champion.
Knox thought it would be cool to record a commercial in the auctioneer style that won him the 2007 award. Comedy Central approached Knox after finding footage of his auctioneering abilities on YouTube.
The commercial is for “Blue Collar Bonanza,” featuring comedians Jeff Foxworthy, Larry the Cable Guy, Ron White, Bill Engvall and others.
Knox actually thought he was being PUNK’D when he got the call from Comedy Central. This is a dream come true for Knox who is an instructor at Nashville Auction School, the same auction school that helped to launch his own career.
The “Blue Collar Bonanza” will air the weekend of June 7-8 on Comedy Central. For more information about Knox, visit the Amerisouth Web site at www.amerisouthauctions.com.
