The Indo-Canadian community might not seem like a traditional hotbed of stand-up comedy, but then again, Sugar Sammy isnt a traditional stand-up comedian. Able to perform in English, French, Punjabi, and Hindi, the well-coiffed jokester quickly broke out when given the opportunity to open for Dave Chappelle, rising from being one of Montreals best comedians to becoming one of comedys hottest international commodities. The Hollywood Reporter named him one of the top ten comedy talents in the world. If that isnt enough to sell you, let us spell it out: The guy is hysterical. And hell be at the Miami Improv this weekend.
With a style reminiscent of a young Eddie Murphy, Sammy bemoans the unfair expectations the Kama Sutra puts on Indian men, tells why he waits until after Valentines Day to find a girlfriend, and gives the pros and cons of arranged marriages. The meek should avoid the first couple of rows because Sammy is known for inflicting his wit on nearby audience members. Who knew multiculturalism could be so funny? Hell perform this Friday at 10:45 p.m., with shows through Sunday. Tickets cost $17 plus the Improvs two-drink minimum. Call 305-441-8200 or visit miamiimprov.com.
