Sam is a London based multi award winning film and theatre director with a specialism in comedy, proper-belly-laugh comedy - the kind that makes you snort milk out of your nose, even when not drinking milk.
Sam studied fine art at Wimbledon School of Art before graduating in theatre direction at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. There he co-founded visual theatre company Parrot in the Tank, with whom he continues to direct. Parrot have created work for The Roundhouse, The Vault Festival, The ICA and the Young Vic as well as touring shows throughout Europe. To finalise his education in comedy and physical performance, Sam enrolled in École Philippe Gaulier in Paris, graduating in 2015. Away from his work with Parrot, Sam directed the critically acclaimed comedy show Graeme of Thrones for its month long sell-out run at the Leicester Square Theatre and subsequent tour of the UK, Australia, New Zealand, America and Canada, before a run in London's West End.
In conjunction with his theatre practice Sam has created music videos, short films and commercials. Known for bringing his theatrical sensibilities and brutal comic imagination to the screen, his work with Marika Hackman, in particular, earned him a UK Music Video Award in 2018.
Asparagus Tips is his first film collaboration with renowned comedian and writer John-Luke Roberts, with whom he has worked on numerous theatre and comedy shows at both Edinburgh Festival and the Soho Theatre.
