Is­lan­der Co­me­dy Night breaks re­cords

Su­gar Sam­my head­lines event

L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

John Ab­bott Col­lege’s 5th an­nual Is­lan­der Co­me­dy Night was held Sa­tur­day at John Ab­bott Col­lege. Some 1,400 people came out to hear Mon­treal co­me­dy su­per­star Su­gar Sam­my, who per­for­med a bi­lin­gual show po­king fun at near­ly eve­ryone. JAC ath­le­tic di­rec­tor Steve Shaw said the night, a key fun­drai­ser for the En­glish CE­GEP’s in­ter­col­le­giate athletics pro­grams, will break the re­cord. “We don’t know how much we’ve made in to­tal yet, but it should be close to $40,000, and it will be the most we’ve ever rai­sed for sure,” Shaw said. Ath­letes from the school’s soc­cer, basketball, foot­ball, hockey and other sports teams ser­ved drinks and piz­za to paying guest, while others en­cou­ra­ged people to pur­chase from a sweets table. Su­gar Sam­my’s show de­li­ve­red a hi­la­rious equal op­por­tu­ni­ty rib­bing of Mon­treal’s cultu­ral and lin­guis­tic scene. He has been cal­led the num­ber one co­me­dian in Que­bec, doing more than 150 per­for­mances - in En­glish, French, Hin­di and Pun­ja­bi - a year in 30 coun­tries. The Hol­ly­wood Re­por­ter na­med Su­gar Sam­my one of top 10 ta­lents to watch in the world of co­me­dy.
