Presented by Laughing Stock Productions

Best Comedy Winner, 2016 Melbourne Fringe

In 1996, Sammy J borrowed some Phantom comics from his school gardener. He wasn’t to know it, but moment set off a chain of events that led to the birth of his daughter, saw him committing a crime in Canberra, and ended with a federal policeman searching his attic. It’s an unbelievably true story from the star of ABC’s “Playground Politics”.

Sammy J is an award-winning comedian, musician and writer. He has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe and Montreal Just for Laughs festivals, been nominated for three ARIA awards, and provides the human half of the acclaimed man/puppet comedy duo "Sammy J & Randy”. 

Directed by Chris McDonald
