Sam Taunton

Sam Taunton is one of the most exciting new voices in Australian comedy.

Bursting onto the scene in the 2015 Triple J RAW Comedy National Final, he received the judges’ ‘Special Mention’ award and has since gone on to play venues all over the world. Juggling stand up and various media projects including being MTV Australia’s newest VJ, his captive storytelling and quickfire punchlines have seen him emerge as one of the most in-demand acts in the country.

Still a fresh face in the comedy world, he was handpicked for the prestigious ‘Comedy Zone’, toured with MICF Roadshow, and was nominated for ‘Best Newcomer’ at the 2017 Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

As seen and heard on ABC’s Comedy Up Late, MTV, SBS, Channel [V], ABC Radio, NOVA and Triple J.
