John Cox is a badass longshoreman with some of the wildest sea stories ever told. He’s written these stories into a one-man play called The Money Fi$h that he is performing himself at The Hudson Theatre in Los Angeles.
We talk with John Cox about hiding condoms in piggy banks, punching his step-dad in the face at age 13, military recruiters, immigrants coming out of a shipping box, a wild sailor named Junior, nearly dying numerous times out at sea, flying hooks mutilating his friends, Russian pirates, the terrifying 40-foot swells, and how fishing in the Bering Sea is way harder than being an Airborne Ranger.
“Nobody can fuck with a hard worker.”
