Brisbane Comedy Festival 2023

Winner of Best Comedy and Directors Choice Award at Sydney Fringe 2022.

Sam Kissajukian takes you on an epic comedic journey of art, mental health and creativity followed by a solo exhibition of his paintings.


Sam has been working professionally as a stand-up comedian for 10 years. He’s toured globally in the USA, UK, Europe and all around Australia. Recently he’s had a breakout year as a visual artist. Within 3 months of going public with his art he had numerous acquisitions by international collectors, received extensive media coverage about his art, exhibitions at 107 Projects, Meraki Arts Bar and Side Door Theatre in NSW as well as a solo exhibition in Perth for which 25 of his works were later acquired by City of Perth’s Yagan Square to display on LCD screens for the month of August.

He recently put together a show detailing his journey into art called “300 Paintings in Lockdown” which was the Winner of “Best Comedy” and “Directors Choice Award” at the Sydney Fringe Festival 2022. This show was also nominated for 5 awards: Best Spoken Word, Hollywood Fringe Touring Award, NZ Fringe Touring Award, Melbourne Fringe Touring Award and Meraki Remount Award.
