Sugar Sammy is the biggest Quebec comedian on the English comedy scene right now. He tours ten months a year, on 5 continents, and has visited some of the largest cities in the world. Still, Montreal remains his first love, his hometown. The content of this show will specifically address Montreal residents and will not be presented elsewhere in the world. On top of local content, he will unveil new material he has been testing internationally. The show will be held in a traditional stand up comedy club format with special guests. 

This project also announces an evenko and Sugar Nation partnership, Sugar Sammy’s production company.  February 29th, 2012, premiere night, will be Sugar Sammy’s birthday.
