This week in press releases: Sugar Sammy

A shout-out to my main man, Sugar Sammy, today. (Do I sound hip enough? Lord knows I try.) Sammy's been a guest on What's So Funny? at least three times that I remember. He's a good guy. And a funny guy, which helps because, after all, he's a professional stand-up comedian. He's also chill, charming and probably even another word that starts with 'ch' that isn't 'Chinese'. Cheeky! Yes, definitely cheeky. Chill, charming and cheeky. Put that on the poster, stat!

Sugar – no wait, Sammy's got a TV special airing on Saturday night on the Comedy Network. Check it out if you like comedy, which I know you do because you're reading here. And before you do, why not listen to his last episode on my show to warm you up and get to know the man behind the stage persona. Here it is for you:

Now here's the press release you've been dying to read:
