COMMUNIQUÉS DE PRESSE

Canadian Comedy Superstar SUGAR SAMMY Returns to perform live in Toronto
2018-11-15

Thursday, Feb. 14, Friday, Feb. 15 & Saturday, Feb. 16

After an incredible year, marked by a series of prestigious events, Canadian Comedy Superstar Sugar Sammy returns to Toronto to perform Thursday, February 14, Friday, February 15 & Saturday, February 16 at the Randolph Theatre. Tickets ($29.99 - 49.99 + taxes & service charges) go on sale today (Thursday, Nov 15) at 10 am at www.sugarsammy.com.

Sugar Sammy never backs down from a challenge. Ultimately, his comedy has changed the landscape of our cultural reality by confronting language and social issues and exploring the great cultural divide. He can hit on cultural, social and political themes with such charm and finesse that it allows him to push the envelope a little farther than most, especially in his famous improv moments, which allow him to interact with audiences at every one of his shows, both onstage and in meet & greets after every show. Sugar Sammy consistently has one of the most colourful audiences in Canada!

His bilingual show, You’re Gonna Rire combined with its all-French version En français svp!, presented in his home town of Montreal and across the province, had a total of 421 sold-out performances and sold 372,000 tickets, making him the best-selling artist with a first one-man show in the history of Quebec. Then, in 2016, Sugar Sammy performed the hit bilingual show one last time in front of a record-breaking crowd of over 115,000 outdoors at the Montreal International Just for Laughs Comedy Festival. Last year he toured Canada, hosting the Just For Laughs Comedy Tour, which visited 12 cities across the country, including Toronto.

With all this Canadian success, he promptly decamped to Paris and started over from scratch to see how far he could push French audiences. Pretty far, it turns out! After selling over 45,000 tickets in France, Belgium & Switzerland, his residency at the Alhambra theatre continues through December.

This past Saturday (November 10) he was profiled on CTV’s national newsmagazine W5, which visited with him in both Montreal and Paris. You can see the show here.

The past year has seen him featured in the New York Times, the world’s most prestigious publication, as well as on the front page of its international edition; become a judge on La France a un Incroyable Talent, one of France’s most popular TV shows; perform in Malaysia and Singapore; launch two comedy specials and record a live show for Comedy Central Asia. The ratings for the second week of La France a un Incroyable Talent (the French version of America’s Got Talent) are in and they’re off the charts: 4 million viewers, an increase from last week’s viewership of 3.5 million and their best numbers since 2011.

Next on the agenda: A return to Toronto and a brief tour of the U.S.: No one escapes his razor sharp wit!
