As of Monday, December 21st, 2015, Sugar Sammy has now sold over 350,000 tickets to his shows in Quebec (You're Gonna Rire, En Français SVP, the Illegal English Edition & the Indian Edition), including over 135,000 to the groundbreaking bilingual show You're Gonna Rire.

Since February 2012, Sugar Sammy has managed what few others have: 

  • 350,000 tickets sold for 367 performances of You’re Gonna RireEn Français SVP,You're Gonna Rire: Illegal English Edition Indian Edition

What started out as an experiment and a show that Sugar Sammy wanted to prove to himself could be done has turned into a record-breaking four years of notable accomplishments.
 
You’re Gonna Rire has opened the doors to a new kind of comedy in Quebec, where people from both French and English linguistic backgrounds can go and enjoy a show together. Many have gone to see the show more than once – coming back with friends to help them discover this language-barrier free comedy. And it’s not too late to see the show for the first (or third) time - every show is a new experience thanks to Sugar Sammy’s interaction with the audience in the hall.
 
And it’s not over – yet. Here’s your last chance to see this groundbreaking show that has guaranteed its place in the history of Canadian comedy! In Montreal, 9 more You’re Gonna Rire shows, one You're Gonna Rire: Illegal English Edition at the Olympia are on sale. Also, 18 shows have been added to the En Français SVP Quebec tour, including 2 shows at the Olympia.
