Sugar Sammy is the biggest international comedy star youve never heard of. Sure, he (and yes, in this instance Sugar is a dudes name) could lazily be categorized as a younger, hipper Russell Peters, but the similarities pretty much end with Indian heritage, Canadian citizenship and selling out shows across the globe. In addition to performing in four languages and at every conceivable festival, Sammys devil-may-care delivery has also scored him opening slots for Dave Chappelle and specials on Comedy Central, HBO and Showtime. Plus hes, like, hot. Would the ladies swoon if Peters directly addressed them during crowd work about sex, racial differences or the more salacious aspects of pop culture? We rest our case.
