Following a critically acclaimed run at the 2022 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Sugar Daddy, a solo show by New York-based comedian Sam Morrison, will go up off Broadway. Performances run from January 11 to February 17, with opening night on January 19.

Morrison makes his Off-Broadway debut with the show, which shows the power of comedy to cope with tragedy. Morrison details the romance between him and his partner Jonathan, which began during “Bear Week” in Provincetown and ended with Jonathan's death from Covid-19. Morrison soon found comfort in comedy, and Sugar Daddy builds on the standard stand-up show format to explore love, loss, and resilience.

Morrison has performed on The Drew Barrymore Show and at in-person showcases including The Stand Up NBC Finals, The Tonight Show Showcase, RuPaul's DragCon, and the New York Comedy Festival, where he was named Best of New Talent. He has also written for the Bravo show Blind Date.

The SoHo Playhouse, where Morrison will perform Sugar Daddy, has become a popular New York comedy venue in recent years. Past acclaimed comedy shows there include Phoebe Waller-Bridge's Fleabag, Hannah Gadsby's Nanette, and Alex Edelman's Just For Us.
