It was actually not all that long ago that Sam was hopping from rooftop to rooftop in NYC to record a special in the thick of the pandemic. Yet, seeing Sam take the stage once more at The Late Late Show with James Corden makes that reality so far away, just like Sam’s last set on Corden in 2018 seems like eons ago.
That all said, Sam is still a shining example of classic stand-up that’s cut from today’s cloth with a perfected balance of manipulating turns of phrase, dissecting unassuming minutia, and sharp punchlines. It almost, might possibly seem like, perhaps, that comedy is picking up where it left off in 2019/2020?
In any case, you should enjoy another great late night set from Sam here.
