Hailed as “one of the hottest young comedians on the international circuit,” Sugar Sammy has been wowing crowds worldwide with multi-language shows. Being able to perform in English, French, Hindi and Punjabi allows the comedian to travel around the globe, giving a vast array of audiences the chance to laugh. His extensively stamped passport gives him a distinctly universal perspective.
Thanks to a LOL partnership with La Slague, Sugar Sammy will be putting on a “Frenglish” show at Collège Boréal as part of the festival.
His show is just one of many announcements LOL made about its 2013 festival. This year, the festival is growing to include a number of bar shows at Little Montreal.
April 17, 8 p.m.: The Crown of Comedy – One comedian will be crowned King, or Queen, of comedy. Ten brave souls will make their stand up comedy debuts in front of a panel of industry professionals, while Yuk Yuk' Tony Krolo hosts the show. The winner will score $2,500, as well as the throne.
April 19, 7:30 p.m.: TGIF – Start the weekend right. Kick back after work with the comedy of host Patrick Haye and Mike Harrison, Phil Rawson, Jy Harris, Graham Kay, Eric Andrews and Geoff McKay.
April 19, 9:30 p.m.: The Darkside of Comedy – Identification inspired the show, and identification will certainly be required. Some of the most crude and crass will be on stage, working their late-night magic. The show is hosted by Ted Morris and features Scott Dell, Alex Pavone, James Judd, Aaron Berg and Darren Frost.
April 20, 9:30 p.m.: LOL Late Night – Some of the most off-the-wall comedians gracing stages in the country will meet on stage. Patrick Haye is hosting Jy Harris, Laurie Elliott, Tony Krolo, Rob Pue and Ted Morris.
Tickets for all LOL shows are now available. Admission to Sugar Sammy's show cost $38. Tickets to all bar shows can be purchased in advance for $22.50 or at the door for $25. For more information and full biographies on the performers, visit lolsudbury.com.
