Sugar Sammy will perform live in Bangalore on March 15. One of the hottest young comedians on the international circuit, Sugar Sammy is enjoying great success both at home and around the world. The event will be held at UB city. English and French critics and fans alike have lauded him for finding a way to make everyone laugh at each other, and themselves, at the same time, in the same room. In March 2013 he takes yet another leap, doing the first English/French/Hindi/Punjabi comedy show for his hometown fans.

Working in four languages affords Sugar Sammy the opportunity to travel the world to perform for his dedicated fans. Over 1000 shows in 30 countries have given him a distinctly universal perspective. He’s been invited to perform at Montreal’s Just For Laughs Festival seven times and is the first, and probably the only comic to perform in all four of his native languages in the English, French and Toronto editions. No stranger to the prestigious festival circuit, he’s also performed at the Sydney, Cape Town, Johannesburg, Melbourne, Auckland, Halifax and Winnipeg festivals as well as Le Grand rire festival in Quebec City.

Part of a new breed of young, global, accessible performers, a popular website dubbed him “Comedy’s New Rock Star” and The Hollywood Reporter selected him as one of their “Ten Comics to Watch”.

A tour-de-force, Sugar Sammy stirs up and samples the multi-cultural melting pot that exists in most urban centres today. In doing so, he presents hilarious scenarios and comments on our global society’s inherent contradictions in a brilliantly entertaining way, presenting his views of his Indian roots, world travels, arranged marriages, pop culture and modern day relationships in a ‘perfect balance between confident swagger and self-deprecation’.

Having worked with some who have paved the way before him, such as Dave Chappelle, George Lopez and Damon Wayans, he’s learned his lessons well. Next stop: global domination - one laugh at a time!
