Born on 2 July, 1983 in Australia, to parents with a New Zealand heritage ( M?ori), Sammy was brought up in Brisbane, Australia.
From our research, we came to know that Music has been Sammy’s friend since his early days.
As per as Sammy word, music has always been in his family. Plus, Sammy, who follows the church of Jesus of Later Day Saints, enjoyed his childhood-day singing with siblings and friends at his school or church.
Having immense love for music, Sammy dreamed of being a R&B singer as he grew up. However, he was attracted to diverse range of genre after he began to witness diverse range of melodies and music such as jazz, reggae and all the Motown greats. If you ask Sammy now about his music, he will answer you proudly ” I would have to say that my “sound” is an infusion of all these genres.”
Personality wise, Sammy is such an inspiration and a proud nerd. He says he would have been a social worker if hadn’t been a musician. He feels that he can make good connections with audiences, for he loves working with the people.
And the award-winning comedian and musician whom is taking everything by storm as of 2015. Plus, he is a happy man, particularly he is happy because he took a right decision in such a hard phase of his life. Did you know he abandoned his law degree to travel the world and inspire people by his music?
Also, he also worked at old age caring center to meet his needs. He says saying those old people that he is their grandchildren was the best part of the job.
Melbourne International Comedy Festival Best Newcomer (2006), Sammy has performed in every major Australian comedy festival you could ever imagine of including Edinburgh Fringe and Montreal Just For Laughs.
Amazingly, his work credentials are too many even to mention here. He is a successful writer, composer, bonsai enthusiast, speaker, inspirer, sketcher and actor. Some of his notable work credentials apart from Rickett lane include critically acclaimed and 2012 ARIA awards nominated album “Skinny Man, Modern Man”, “ABC’s political sketch show Wednesday Night Fever (2013, host)”, “rated musical comedy duet Sammy J in the Forest of Dreams (2008)”, “Sammy J & Randy performances at different venues such as 2010 Melborne Comedy and the Sydney Opera House”, and “TV sketch show Good news World (duet)”.
Amazingly, the duo received Australia’s most prestigious comedy prize – the Barry Award – at the 2010 Melbourne Comedy Festival. Not only that, they have been Oxfam ambassadors to South Africa in the past. Moreover, Sammy alone is the ambassador of the inspiring organization that we know as Big Brothers and Sister, which major mission is to guide and teach life lessons to young people via volunteer mentorship.
Apart from all of this, he bragged fifth place at the recent Penag Floral Festival for his cascade style conifer. And from his website, we came to find that he runs global workshops on the art of bonsai with an emphasis on the katade-mochi class of plants.
Most importantly, he is the mastermind behind “The 50 year show”, which is credited for bringing a large number of comedians together. The successful show will run every five year until 2058. The next show is in 2018.
Now moving on to his physical configurations, he is an average tall man with a height that is speculated to be below 5 feet and 11 inches. By age, he is 32 as of 2015 but he looks like someone on his twenties or even teenage. More precisely, he possesses an extremely slim body and thus he can plainly described as skinny men whose shirtless pictures won’t give you eye pleasures. However, his physical immaturity hasn’t stopped him to explore his brain and imaginations. His fans (mostly girls) describe him to be cute-looking and we sure agree he is such a smiley face and charmer, a man full of expressions.
Talking about his relationship status, we don’t know for a fact that whether he is a straight man or a gay or something else. Therefore, we don’t have any data or rumors or projections to state information in matters related to his love / dating life.
Call it a unnatural marriage, brotherly love or friends respect, he has a strong bond with Randy. According to Sammy, he doesn’t like his partner Randy personality is but he ends up working with him because nobody will take them for work.
Anyway, let us assume that he is a single man enjoying his career until we have something verifiable. Having said that, we will also like to state that there are no any such rumors suggesting about Sammy’s married life with his loving wife or his dating history with his long-term girlfriend. Maybe he is likes to keep such info out of the media. However, you can hear several funny rants from Randy about his relationship experiences and stuffs including several of his bad habits including cheating on his wife.
Unfortunately, we are not aware of his exact net worth but we can easily guess that he is worth a fortune given his long experience in comedy and own show in television (Sammy J $ Randy, in Ricketts Lane.
Fans can connect Sammy on his Facebook account. And if you are a fan, it would be a wise decision to visit his website called www.sammy-j.com to know more about his work and by his DVDs, albums and stuffs, and also to know about his tour dates. Sadly, we couldn’t trace Sammy on both Twitter and Instagram. Howeverm you can surely find his fanpages in both platforms.
Lastly, as a fan, I would like to thank the duet for touching complex matters of life weather that is relationships, social constructions, hobbies or economics in a comedic way. The duo is extremely successful at bringing realities of life in front of us in a humorous way. They are really an example for all of the comedians. Believe it or not, they are regularly invited at reputed corporate events, intellectual talks and other big events to light up the atmosphere with their enjoyable yet intellectual insights.
