Sam unknowingly documented his mental states over a 5 month manic episode via the creation of 300 large paintings. An epic story combining comedy and visual art to explore the Bipolar mind.

Sam has been a comedian for over a decade, and has toured globally. He’s recently had breakout success as a visual artist with solo exhibitions at Brisbane Powerhouse, the MRAG Museum and an upcoming exhibition at Summerhall in the UK.

Nominated: Melbourne Fringe Tour Ready Award (via Sydney Fringe Festival 2022).
Winner: Perth Fringeworld 2023 Weekly Comedy Award
