SAMMY J RETURNS WITH HERO COMPLEX
In 1996, Sammy J borrowed some Phantom comics from his school gardener. He wasn’t to know it at the time, but that moment set off a chain of events that led to the birth of his daughter, saw him committing a crime in Canberra, and ended with a federal policeman searching his attic. It’s an unbelievably true story from the star of ABC’s “Playground Politics”.
Sammy J is an award-winning comedian, musician and writer. He has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe and Montreal Just for Laughs festivals, been nominated for three ARIA awards, and provides the human half of the acclaimed man/puppet comedy duo “Sammy J & Randy”.
Directed by Chris McDonald
