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 farewell 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+.

‘How do you prefer your comedy? Straight stand-up, musical, storytelling, lighthearted or heartfelt? Why not just have it all? Sammy J has something for everyone in his show.’ Chortle (UK)
