Sam Taunton

It's Nice, It's Modern

Presented by Brisbane Comedy Festival and Sam Taunton

One of the most exciting new voices in Australian comedy, Sam Taunton explores perspective, second chances and why you should never use the toilets at music festivals. At the very least it will be nice and modern.

Nominated for Best Newcomer at 2017 Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Sam’s captive storytelling and quick fire punchlines have seen him play venues worldwide to rave reviews.

After a huge 2017 that saw him tour across the country with the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow, perform at Splendour In The Grass and the nationwide Falls Festival, nominated for Best Newcomer at Melbourne International Comedy Festival, PLUS record his first comedy special for ABC Television’s Next Gen, Sam brings us his new show in an attempt to wow the Sunshine State.
