Sam Lake

Sam Lake's voice and material chimes perfectly. Hilarious routines about office huns, big DADDY energy and spicy personal confessions. A blast off joke about first aid too!


After his 'gut bustingly funny' (DeadlineNews.co.uk) debut show last year, Sam Lake is back and he is Daddy. Well... he's trying to be. Get ready for a brand-new show all about Sam's journey to becoming the world's youngest DILF, whilst talking about Furbies, twink death and the transformative wonder of Butlins. As well as starring in All 4's The Joy of Missing Out and Dave's The Comedy Guide to Life, Sam has written for Mock The Week, Breaking The News and Newsjack and is the winner of Leicester Square Theatre's New Comedian of the Year.

About The Show

With the rise of formerly beloved male celebs turning into "anti-woke", "why aren't men men anymore?" toxic commentators on low-quality news outlets and podcasts, Sam has become scared of the man he may become in the future. So to combat this fragile masculinity, he's embarking on a mission to ensure he becomes what he believes to be the last respectable form of a man, the Daddy.

Following on from his acclaimed debut hour last year, Sam presents a show about the positive role models in his life that taught him to be a good guy. Who in his life has that BDE (Big Daddy energy)? Is it Claire, the office manager & Sam's bestie? Join him on his journey to Daddy-dom, as he chats about Furbies, Butlins & scandalous interactions with a rugby team.
