Sam Morrison’s “Sugar Daddy”


Following a 13 week run at Soho Playhouse with two encore engagements, Outer Critics Circle Award & Off Broadway Alliance nominations, and sold out run in London, the critically acclaimed ‘Sugar Daddy’ is heading to Chicago! Grappling with the death of his partner from COVID-19 in 2021, Morrison transforms his grief into humor. Masterfully toeing the line between comedy and tragedy, he takes the audience on a journey of love, loss, diabetes, seagull attacks, and a few extraordinary coincidences.

Sam Morrison is an NYC based comedian. His acclaimed solo show SUGAR DADDY premiered Off Broadway earlier this year following a successful run at Edinburgh’s Fringe Festival and recently concluded a 13-week run at Soho Playhouse after two encore engagements. As a stand up, Sam has recently performed on The Drew Barrymore Show, as well as some of the prestigious showcases in the country, such as The Stand-Up NBC Finals, The Tonight Show Showcase, and RuPaul’s DragCon. He was also named Best of New Talent at the New York Comedy Festival. Most recently, Sam made his late night debut on LATE NIGHT WITH SETH MEYERS.

Acclaim for Sugar Daddy:

“Morrison’s is the best new show in New York right now: a whip-crack 65 minutes, beautifully told, sharp, moving, and truly laugh-out-loud, doubled-up, head-thrown-back funny.” – The Daily Beast

“Sam Morrison’s superb show proves grief is not beyond comedy’s reach.” – The Guardian

“Quick-witted and charismatic…Sam Morrison confronts overwhelming loss with punch lines and panache.” – NYTimes
