Sammy J tackles the tricky questions

SammyJ - Sammy J and the Forest of Dreams

1)       How did you get the name of your show this year?
"Sammy J in the Forest of Dreams" tells the story of myself, Sammy J, entering a forest, where things happen in a dream-like state.

2)       Tell us your favourite punchline

3)       What's been your best heckle?
"You've ruined my life".

4)       What was your response?
"Go home, father."

5)       What's the craziest thing you've ever bought on TradeMe?
A small African country. It's an administrative nightmare.

6)       Aside from yourself, who would you kill to see at this year's festival - and why?
I worked with Rhys Darby in the play "Breaker Morant" in Edinburgh two years ago, so I'm thinking of turning up in my Boer War uniform just for old times sake. And because he is hilarious.

7)       What was the last film you watched?

8)       What was the one question you were glad you weren't asked on this questionnaire?
Have you ever murdered a prostitute?

9)       What's the one question we should have asked?
"Sammy, we hear your show to be performed at the Comedy Festival with Heath McIvor is a triumph of musical comedy, theatre, and puppetry. Discuss!"
