Sammy J performs a different kind of comedy.The show begins with a voice-over telling a children’s story, one Sammy had apparently written and had rejected from publishers when he was a little boy. From this narrative he then veers off, telling other stories; some are connected to each other by a word or an idea and yet they seem to be completely random and unconnected. All of these narratives culminate in a final, incredible tale involving a possum, Sammy J and a Fluffy Christmas G-String.The structure of the show is spectacular. It’s tight and intelligent and even postmodern. Not only are there many stories which are often cross-referenced throughout the show they are also told through different media. For example Sammy J speaks from a microphone but also reads aloud pseudo-stories from books as well as performing songs which are, undoubtedly, the funniest parts of the show.It’s here where the puns are the most obvious. The songs are wacky and include a musical meditation on the f-word whilst another is about Sammy J feeling offended when a stranger denied holding his hand on a turbulent airplane. The show and persona are quite odd and I found I wasn’t laughing out loud too much but musing on what he was doing or where the show was going. He is a slick performer, full of confidence and his style is quite unique.
