Born in Stockton, stand-up comic Sam Bam has been seen on BET’s Comic View and Coming to the Stage. He was a finalist in the San Francisco International Comedy Competition, and placed second in the Bay Area Black Comedy Competition. He’s known for his hilarious true stories of real-life pain, which he explains with the catchphrase: “it wasn’t funny then, but it’s funny now.”
“To take people away from all the misery, pain, and problems they have in the time I have on stage feeds me. It gives me crazy energy to be able to put a smile on people’s faces and make their belly’s ache.” When you see Sam Bam on stage it’s as if you’re watching an action/comedy/improv explosion. His animated body language along with his funny and relatable stories only intensifies the laughter. Sam Bam explains, “I love to talk about the types of things all of us do, but are afraid to put out there, you laugh because you realize it wasn’t funny then, but it’s funny now.”
Not only does Sam perform as a comedian, he is also an accomplished event producer. He has produced shows that have brought thousands together and also has gained local media attention. He continues to produce shows and is set to do it big.
