On stage he’s a force of nature, pacing the stage like a
cyclone of funny as he questions authority and the
conventions of our society one moment, then earnestly
expressing his affinity for bizarre the next. His comedy has
no limits – its whatever he’s thinking about, and that’s
usually what everyone else is thinking about, even though
sometimes we don’t like to admit to it.
“I like to think of myself as the little voice in everyone’s
head, except I have a microphone and I’m funnier,” Sam
