Much more than kitch parody

Sitting at his grand piano, blonde-haired, blue-eyed Sammy J looks like a cruise ship entertainer, but his clever, self-referential comedy is much more than kitsch parody. His upbeat songs are gleefully ridiculous and intervals of smart stand-up keep the momentum going. With his manic and flustered energy Sammy J proves that there is no better man to duet with than himself. (Emma Lennox)

The rude puppet show that blew Oz away roasts everything in its path. 'Part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe'.
