WINNER Best Comedy, Adelaide Fringe Weekly Awards 2017
WINNER Best Comedy, Melbourne Fringe 2016
Things are “hotting” up! The sell-out, 5-star award-winning show of the Adelaide and Melbourne Fringe comes to Brisbane Comedy Festival.
Australia has come out in droves to see the hilarious coming of age story about a schoolboy and his gardner, and a friendship based on their love of comic book hero, The Phantom. Jam-packed with real life photos and video and new songs, Sammy J has taken his audience on an unbelievably true journey across the last twenty years of his life to an incredible, must be seen to be believed finale.
In 1996, Sammy J borrowed some Phantom comics from his school gardener. That moment set off a chain of events that led to the birth of his daughter, saw him committing a crime in Canberra, and ended with a federal policeman searching his attic
An unbelievably true story from the star of ABC’s Playground Politics, with six 5 stars reviews in Adelaide alone last week, and a Best Comedy award, Hero Complex is a bona fide hit!
