MC - Sam Bowring

Sam began performing standup comedy at the famous (at the time) (in Sydney) (amongst certain circles) Harold Park Hotel when he was 16, getting his first paid work there at 17. He has been runner-up in the Raw Comedy National Final, nominated for Best Emerging Comic at the Adelaide Fringe, and for both Best Newcomer and the Piece of Wood Awards at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Luckily, he’s never actually won anything, so his mild success never went to his head.

A writer from a young age, his first novel was published when he was nineteen. Since then he has written several more, including the critically acclaimed fantasy series ‘The Broken Well Trilogy’, which has reprinted four times and sold over ten thousand copies. He followed it up with the ‘Strange Threads’ duology, which was selected for ‘Get Reading: 50 Books You Can’t Put Down’ campaign in 2012.

He started popular comedy night ‘Mic in Hand’ in Sydney, has written for various televisual broadcasts.

And here is an extra sentence for no real reason.

”Four Stars. His jokes are like ninjas quietly sneaking up on you … undeniably funny.”
– Adelaide Advertiser

– dB Magazine

“He makes it easy to laugh … an immensely likeable boyishness … his endearing meander earned well-deserved laughs.”
– Beat Magazine

“A comedic chameleon, Bowring works a concept over from every angle until it begs for mercy and the audience begs for more.”
– Darkside, Triple M

“A very, very funny guy … some of the laughter was so intense, it sounded almost painful … feels like he has the talent to walk onstage cold and make people laugh using anything that comes to hand.”
– Inpress

“Provides a great deal of easy to laugh at material … a really accessible comic, but clever enough to be universally appealing.”
