Winner: Barry Award, Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2012
Winner: The Age Critics' Award, Melbounre International Comedy Festival 2008
Nominee: Best Comedy, Adelaide Fringe 2012
In 2010 Sammy J and Randy won Australia’s most coveted comedy award, The Barry, for their one-man/one-puppet show, Sammy J and Randy in Ricketts Lane. In 2011, they wowed audiences around the globe with Sammy J and Randy in Bin Night, then again in 2012, with the third show in their trilogy, The Inheritance.
They are without question two of the most sought after comics in Australia today. Combining catchy songs with chaotic tomfoolery and outbursts of filth, these two adorable characters have an uncanny knack of charming the pants off everyone they meet. They have played to sold out houses at The Sydney Opera House, closed the Montreal Just For Laughs Comedy Gala and sold out seasons at the Edinburgh Fringe.
In 2012 the pair hosted the Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s Opening Night TV Gala. Sammy J & Randy are currently developing a show for television.
