Last year we saw Sugar Sammy with NetIP LA-OC and we were nearly falling down laughing! And on Feb 12th we met up to be entertained by Monrok (Last Comic Standing, Winner Of California's Funniest Female) on the Mahatma Moses tour..

The Hollywood Reporter just named him [Sugar Sammy] one of the top 10 rising comedy talents from around the world, and Askmen.com dubbed him “Comedy’s New Rock Star”.
Both are apt titles, considering that Sugar Sammy is touring the globe like a rock star, setting attendance records around the world for sold-out shows in four languages – English, French, Punjabi and Hindi. International critics, from Canada to Dubai, are unanimous in their praise of his uproariously funny material, his laconic delivery and his universal insight on multicultural society.
A Canadian born to Indian parents, Sugar Sammy draws on everything from arranged marriages in his own Indian ancestry to his views on deviant sex, drugs and modern day relationships. Brilliantly entertaining and relatable, Sugar Sammy will have you laughing, thinking, and seeing life in a whole new way.
Before he was opening for Dave Chappelle and working with the likes of George Lopez and Damon Wayans, the secret to his multi-national success was discovered at the Just For Laughs International Comedy Festival, where he was the first ever comedian to perform in both English, French and Hindi shows. He’s appeared at the festival for the past six years in a row, and has added other international festivals to his annual lineup, including the Sydney Comedy Festival, the Cape Town Comedy Festival, and the Johannesburg Comedy Festival.
Sugar Sammy was featured in his own comedy special “Sugar Sammy Live in Concert” for HBO Canada in June 2009. His special on Showtime Arabia, "Sugar Sammy Live in Dubai" will air in Dubai and 14 countries throughout the Middle East in September 2009. His other television specials include the Showtime Arabia specials, “Minorities Rule” and “Friday Night Live”, CBC's “Just For Laughs”, CTV’s “Comedy Now”, and appearances on The Comedy Network (Canada), The Comedy Channel (Australia), and on Dutch TV.
He's won the Just For Laughs Comedy Award for “Discovery of the Festival”, and garnered many other honors, including nominations for this year’s M!M!M! Awards, as well as the Canadian Comedy Award for “Funniest Male Comic”.
Sammy continues to tour the globe and prove that laughter is indeed universal. He’s performed in the USA, UK, Australia, South Africa, India, Ireland, Holland, Dubai, Germany, Hong Kong, Thailand, The Philippines, and the Caribbean. He also toured across Canada promoting his CD, “Down with the Brown”, and was forced to ad shows in every city, due to overwhelming demand.
