Sammy J is an award-winning comedian, writer and musician. A proud nerd, he abandoned his law degree to travel the world and sing funny songs for a living. You may have seen him on TV, at a festival, or as one half of the man/puppet duo Sammy J & Randy.
He is the host of ABC Radio Melbourne Breakfast and the star of his own AACTA-nominated, weekly political satire on ABC TV.
With three ARIA-nominated albums under his belt and a Helpmann nomination for Best Comedy Performer, Sammy J is truly one of the most inventive and likeable performers in the country.
