Sam Morrison's SUGAR DADDY Extends for Final Time at SoHo Playhouse

Morrison takes the audience on a journey of love, loss, diabetes, seagull attacks, and a few extraordinary coincidences.

LIC Arts Open Festival and Open Studios To Return After 3-Year Hiatus

Comedian Sam Morrison's acclaimed solo show Sugar Daddy will extend its run at the Soho Playhouse (15 Vandam Street) due to popular demand for one final weekend, from April 6-8, 2023. Sugar Daddy, directed by Ryan Cunningham and produced by SoHo Playhouse and co-produced by Ali Fischbein, premiered Off Broadway earlier this year, and is currently in its encore engagement.

Grappling with the death of his partner from COVID-19 in 2021, Morrison transforms his grief into humor. Masterfully toeing the line between comedy and tragedy, he takes the audience on a journey of love, loss, diabetes, seagull attacks, and a few extraordinary coincidences.

After meeting his partner Jonathan at the infamous "Bear Week" in Provincetown, the two fell in love quarantining together at his grandmother's house before Jonathan's tragic passing. Soon after, Sam found a coping mechanism in an unexpected place: comedy. Sugar Daddy is a revolutionary hour of comedy that follows in the footsteps of stand-up solo artists, but expands on what comedy can be - a brutally honest and truly hilarious exploration of tragedy and triumph. Ultimately, this is an uplifting hour that is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit and our ability to find light in darkness.
