Since its premiere in May, You’re Gonna Rire 2 had everyone talking, inciting discussions about the current state of Quebec and the world. Regardless of audience perspectives or point of view, one thing is certain: he definitely accomplished what he set out to do by sparking passionate agreement, heated opposition, anger, joy, and a variety of perspectives and opinions, but all delivered with his unmistakable charm. Sammy definitely gets people to think about their own cultures and sometimes even redefine their own perspectives. Plus he’s hilarious, and leaves no stone unturned - and he’s one of Canada’s top comedians for exactly those reasons.
"C’est cute vos p’tites réactions" - Sugar Sammy
" … maintenant il a les poches pleines de «Fuck You » money… et donc la liberté de dire ce qu’il veut sans craindre les conséquences... Et cette liberté-là est exaltante à voir aller, à se déployer sur scène." - Rebecca Makonnen, Radio Canada
"J’ai vu ce spectacle et j’ai ri du début à la fin […] il a tenu promesse : You’re gonna rire 2, son nouveau spectacle bilingue, tire sur tout ce qui bouge et sera présenté partout au Québec parce que "c’est là qu’on est rendu" " - Chantal Guy, La Presse

"J’ai eu l’idée de me faire accompagner par un professionnel de l’humour politique : Guy Nantel. Il a trouvé l’idée fameuse et nous nous faisions une joie de rire à nos dépens puis d’aller rencontrer Sammy dans sa loge pour partager nos fous rires avec lui." - Jean Francois Lisée, Le Devoir
"Jean-François voulait le voir à la fin du spectacle … j'étais prêt à le suivre." - Guy Nantel, La rencontre Nantel-Durocher

"…il a entamé la tournée de son spectacle bilingue You’re gonna rire 2, qui va se promener de Québec à Gatineau, de Trois-Rivières à Magog, de Montréal à Sherbrooke. Chouette!, on va pouvoir se faire faire la morale dans les deux langues officielles du Canada." - Sophie Durocher, Journal de Montreal
"Son dernier spectacle, parait-il, si j’en crois les critiques, je ne l’ai pas vu, mais si j’en crois les critiques, il fesse tout le temps sur la même cible, c’est à dire les francophones.” - Richard Martineau, QUB Radio
“The choice of locale (Centre Pierre-Péladeau) is a delicious twist given the homegrown comedian’s reputation as a bête noire of Quebec nationalists…” - Konrad Yakabuski, Globe & Mail
