Standup Comedy Spotlight – Sugar Sammy
June 14th, 2010
Sometimes Wikipedia is good for something. I had no idea who Sugar Sammy was until I started looking for a Canadian comic to spotlight today. Wikipedia said he was funny and for once, Wikipedia was right. Sugar Sammy was born and raised in Montreal and is the first comic to perform at Just For Laughs in both English and French (in fact Sammy speaks English, French, Punjabi and Hindi). With influences that include Eddie Murphy and Dave Chappelle (who he opened for in Toronto), Sammy tackles race, religion, pop culture with a humor that is both familiar and fresh at the same time.
