THINGS ARE HOTTING UP! SAMMY J's HERO COMPLEX IS THE SELL OUT, 5-STAR AWARD WINNING SHOW OF THE ADELAIDE FRINGE AND NOW 'BARRY' NOMINATED FOR BEST COMEDY AT THE MELBOURNE COMEDY FESTIVAL
Australia has come out in droves to the hilarious coming of age story about a schoolboy and his gardener, and a friendship based on their love of comic book hero, The Phantom. Jam packed with real life photos, video and new songs, Sammy J has taken his audience on an unbelievably true journey across the last 20 years of his life to an incredible, must be seen to be believed finale.
With six 5-star reviews in Adelaide alone and now nominated for BestComedy at every festival, Hero Complex is a bona fide hit and touring Australia now!
"Hero Complex is, quite simply, comic genius" ***** The Advertiser (Feb 2017)
In 1996, Sammy J borrowed some Phantom comics from his school gardener. He wasn't to know it, 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".
'A masterclass in storytelling...Sammy is at the peak of his powers as a stand-up comic. An hour of outrageous laughter … impossible to fault.” ***** Arts Hub
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
