In 1998, Sam Nicoresti was abducted by aliens. Now he's ready to reveal the beans and spill the truth in his debut show about space, alienation and dimensional string theory. Given the state of the world (ie very good), it’s natural for humanity to be content with knowing in space there is no one to hear our screams. But are we truly alone? A smuggled tape, mysterious light and charred manuscript on interdimensional filing cabinets reveal the truth. Free buffet. No government agents. Half of Sam & Tom (Sketch Off! Finalists 2018). 'Dangerously deranged' ***** (MumbleComedy.net).Book Now
Sam Nicoresti is a surrealist story-teller who works across comedy, music and film. His shows are visually rich, tightly worded and conceptually bizarre.
His debut show, Bedtime, was a sleepover party plus waking nightmare full of horned gods, pregnant Madonnas, and maroon men. His second, UFO, is a journey through the universe of mad uncle Victor, childhood mistakes, and pan-dimensional ping pong balls.
Sam directed the comedy-horror short The Baby, which played at LSFF 2019 and plays music with Supply Teachers, who write songs about horses.Book Now
