Australia’s favourite brother, and multi-award-winning performer, Samuel Johnson OAM, invites you to join him for his most personal offering so far, An Evening with Samuel Johnson.

In the 2000s, Samuel rose to fame as an actor and in 2013 he captured the nation’s heart when his sister Connie’s terminal cancer diagnoses prompted him to unicycle around Australia to raise funds and awareness for medical research. What most people don’t know is just how unstable Samuel was before his sister was diagnosed with terminal cancer as a young mum. This show tells the story of how a sister saved her brother before she died.

Samuel’s story since his sister’s terminal diagnosis is incredible, raw and epic. An Evening with Samuel Johnson is a rare opportunity to hear Samuel combine real-life stories and filmed pieces, reflecting on the people and events that inspire him – leaving your mind racing and your heart full. Plus hear behind the scenes insights about the challenges and triumphs of his journey with his charity, Love Your Sister.

All sales from Samuel’s most recent publication, Dear Lover, contribute to Love Your Sister’s cancer research.
