In You’re gonna rire - Le show franglais, comedian Sugar Sammy plans to unite the two solitudes under one roof. Truly capturing the essence of what it is to be a Montrealer, he will be jumping from one language to the other in the same show, in the same routine and sometimes in the same sentence: a first in Canada.

Outside of North America his shows have been presented in England, Australia, Germany, Ireland, Holland, Hong Kong, Thailand, the Philippines, China, India, Bahrain, Jordan, Qatar, Egypt, Kuwait, Abu Dhabi, Lebanon, Singapore, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Dubai, New Zealand and South Africa.

His first show was broadcast on HBO. The famous Hollywood Reporter named him one of the top ten rising comedy talents on the planet. 

Sugar Sammy is an interesting and charismatic provocateur. With charm and finesse he’ll hit on themes like multiculturalism and modern life in the world's great urban centres. He treats controversial subjects with a respect that represents an entire generation. Sugar Sammy embraces and lives globalisation and he invites the members of his audience not to fear it. He dreams of a Quebec that's more accepting and open to all cultures; he is the best example of the international Quebecer.

Presented by evenko and Sugar Nation.
