Part of

Brisbane Comedy Festival 2023

After five years, 200 episodes and countless legal threats Sammy J is stepping away from his weekly ABC TV spot – but not before throwing a giant party.

Come and farewell Government Coach, Playground Politics, National Yoga, bush poet SJ Paterson, Hookturnistan and more as we say “full credit” to taking the piss on the national broadcaster. Get around them, Australia. Good hustle.

Sammy J is a comedian, writer, composer, and broadcaster. He’s played in Edinburgh, Montreal and London; had a sitcom on Netflix; is one half of the man/puppet comedy duo “Sammy J & Randy” and currently hosts the breakfast show on ABC Radio Melbourne. His debut book, “The Long Class Goodnight”, is out now through Hardie Grant and his ARIA-nominated show “Symphony in J Minor” is streaming on Paramount+.
