Geoff Shaw

Comedian Sammy J knows nothing, and he’s the first one to admit it. Politicians know everything, or so they would have us believe. When unstoppable comedic force meets immovable political object, the result is Sammy J’s Democratic Party, a brand new event that leaves the week behind and kicks off with a drink, a few laughs and a fair old shake of the sauce bottle.

In the past decade, Sammy J has conquered the international comedy scene, winning plaudits at the Melbourne, Adelaide, Jakarta and Edinburgh comedy festivals. He also pops up regularly on the goggle box, on shows like Spicks and Specks, Good News Week and as host of the satirical sketch show Wednesday Night Fever. Best known for his collaborations with Randy the purple puppet, Sammy J’s Democratic Party sees him flying solo as he takes a poll of everyone invited (that’s you) to help him cut the visible strings of our politicians and find out what they really think.

Outspoken Frankston independent MP Geoff Shaw holds the balance of power in the Victorian parliament; he resigned his Liberal Party membership this year. Sammy J will find out what makes him tick.

Take one ultra skinny, multi-award-winning comedian, add a political figure who may or may not be aware of what they’re getting themselves into, throw in a beverage or two … and stand back and watch the fireworks.

Sammy J's Democratic Party

Comedian Sammy J knows nothing, and he’s the first one to admit it. Politicians know everything, or so they would have us believe. When unstoppable comedic force meets immovable political object, the result is Sammy J’s Democratic Party, an event that leaves the week behind and kicks off with a drink, a few laughs and a fair old shake of the sauce bottle.

The first two Sammy J’s Democratic Party events have been among our most popular – and talked-about. Who could forget Geoff Shaw’s bagpipe-playing, or Lindsay Tanner’s singing? Certainly not those who were there to see it.

Rock up, sit back and watch the anarchy unfold, as our political guests unbutton and unwind (and often reveal more than they mean to) in Sammy J’s freewheeling company.

What special talents will our latest guests reveal?
