GLOBAL COMEDY POWERHOUSE SUGAR SAMMY BRINGS HIS NATIONAL TOUR: SUGAR SAMMY – THE OUTSIDER ACROSS THE US FROM NYC TO L.A. MARCH 3 – JULY 9
Canadian comedy superstar Sugar Sammy returns to the US, on tour from March 3 to July 9, ready to take on the US with his unfiltered view of the where the world is at today. When it comes to heavy hitters in comedy, Sugar Sammy is a powerhouse.
He’s conquered the rest of the territories and now he’s coming for the US! Sugar Sammy is an international phenomenon, a TV star in both Canada and France – he stars in the French version of America’s Got Talent (La France a un incroyable talent) as the sassy 4th judge, reaching 3.5 – 4.2 million viewers per week. He’s won Comedian of the Year accolades in both France and Canada. And he’s a growing force on the internet, with over 1 million followers on his social media platforms. He’s a master at interacting with his fans and his Improv Moments, exchanging comments with the audience, are YouTube gold, with 25 million views alone logged on his banter with a group of “Karens” at his show.
As an outsider looking in, Sugar Sammy isn’t afraid to offend with his honest assessment of where the US is at on the world stage. Politically incorrect? Maybe. He leaps right into the cultural divide to hit on cultural, social and political themes with a combination of charm and finesse that allows him to push the envelope a little farther than most. Sugar Sammy isn’t worried about being canceled, in fact, he’s looking to be pre-canceled!
He’s performed over 1,800 shows in 32 countries, in English, French, Hindi, and Punjabi. His groundbreaking bilingual show, performed in English & French, sold out 421 performances and 372,000 tickets, making it the best-selling debut one-man show in Quebec’s history.
Two of the US’s most prestigious daily papers have profiled him, with a feature that appeared in both the New York Times and on the front page of its international edition and an interview on the front page of the Washington Post’s Arts section, a privilege bestowed on few performers.
His shows never disappoint and always provoke discussion. You can agree with him or disagree with him, but his natural instinct for comedy and what the New York Times called his “talent for provoking both laughter and outrage” will win you over every time.
