⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ (5 stars)
Quite simply, this is gay stand up at its finest. I always find it difficult watching a gay comedian trying to connect to a whole audience when talking about their experiences, but Sam had the entire crowd in the palm of his hand. Split between his very open and frank portrayal of his life and the fantasy-like monologues of his first gay experience, Sam lets it all out as he talks Daddies, water sports and Seth Rogan. The American comedian brings a really fresh perspective to the life of a closeted gay Jew as he faces the challenge of coming out and his realisation he has a thing for Daddies! Don’t worry if you have no idea what a daddy is, Sam will happily explain.
I always think a good way to judge comedy is my ability to relate to the comedian, and I don’t think I’ve ever related more in my life, I was overcome with flashbacks to my own closeted struggles and teen dramas.
Normally I would say a show with topics including ass eating and cam sex isn’t appropriate for you gran, however, in this case, I disagree, bring her, she will love it. In fact bring the whole family, especially your possibly gay curious 18 year old son, he might learn something.
It would be silly to miss out an important factor, Sam is hot, not just boy next door hot, I mean twitch in your pants hot, his infectious smile certainly helps the show along and let’s be honest, jokes sound better in an American accent anyway
All-round it’s a really good show, and a comedian I highly recommend seeing in his debut year, as I have no doubt he is going to go very far. An easy five star, this is stand up at its finest
