Five new shows in May and June at the Olympia bring him over the 100-show mark

If this were the Olympics of entertainment, comedian Sugar Sammy would have a lot of gold around his neck.

With the addition of the following shows, Sugar Sammy will have surpassed the 100-show mark at the Olympia Theatre. A feat only matched by the 17-year run of the Quebec play, Broue.

The last two years have been a whirlwind of success for him. Granted, the Charter of Values, the possibility of an election and his beloved Canadiens provide invaluable subject matter for the comedian. But he continues to break boundaries while exploring places where he doesn’t ‘belong’. He is the first non-francophone performer to win two Olivier comedy awards and currently he co-stars in the comedy Ces gars-là on the V television network with buddy Simon Olivier Fecteau, again a first for a non-francophone.
