"The jokes are as cruel as they are funny… a class act indeed."
"Refreshing honesty and a wonderfully dark view of life!"
A confident and original act, Sam started his stand-up career in 2007 and in that time has attracted more than a little attention, not least with him cleaning up and winning almost every New Act competition in the country including 2008 Beat the Frog World Series, Hull Comedian of the Year, Hilarity Bites New Act of the Year followed in 2019 by Laughing Horse New Act of the Year and King Gong at the Comedy Store.
At the Edinburgh Festival in 2010 he appeared in the double-header show A Calculated Risk as part of the Free Festival. In 2011 he returned to the Fringe as part of the Amused Moose Laugh-Off showcase, having won his way through to the final of that competition as well.
Sam also regularly writes for Russell Howard’s Good News and has appeared on ITV’s FHM Stand-Up Hero.
