Sam Clark is a comedian, writer, actor and filmmaker from Denver, Colorado. His stand-up comedy special on Amazon Prime's LAUGH AFTER DARK premiered last summer. He's written for Netflix’s comedy magic show MAGIC FOR HUMANS and the CBS Diversity Showcase, worked as writer’s assistant for Comedy Central’s PROBLEMATIC, and nabbed over 25 million views on viral videos he’s produced.
Sam recently sold his new animated show to [network redacted - stay tuned!] and last year directed, produced, edited and starred in FAIRVIEW, a mockumentary pilot about a small town City Council election, loosely based on his experience running for President of Harvard's Student Council as a joke, accidentally winning by a lot, and then resigning. He re-edited the show into a short film, which has been officially selected for 16 festivals and won 14 Awards, including 5 for Best Comedy and 4 for Best Actor (Sam playing a worse version of himself). FAIRVIEW was reviewed by Film Daily as "the political satire we need." Learn more about FAIRVIEW and its festival successes, and watch the trailer here: Sam Clark For City Council.
Sam’s viral videos and have been featured in TIME, USA Today, Forbes, HuffPo, Gawker, Business Insider, Funny Or Die, College Humor, Buzzfeed, and more. He's been featured on the Laugh Factory's "Fresh Faces," the San Francisco Comedy Competition, the Cleveland Comedy Festival, the Burbank Comedy Festival, the Devil Cup, the New South Comedy Festival, the LA Comedy Festival and more. Sam performs stand-up all over Los Angeles, tours colleges, produces videos for the Laugh Factory's "Rubee Tuesdays," and hosts the monthly “HOT SETS” comedy show in Santa Monica.
In the quarantined months of Coronavirus, Sam has hosted and produced the hit drinking game show CA$H OUT BLACK OUT on Facebook Live, as well as hosting the day-long Rolling Stone-featured "Virtual 420 Party" with Lightshade Dispensary and the Forbes-reviewd Zoom Bachelor/ette fundraisers for Feeding America and the NAACP Legal Defense Fund (over $130,000 raised!).
Outside of comedy, Sam is somehow the Lead Video Producer for the New Zealand-based education company Crimson Education, and led Crimson's YouTube channel from 500 subscribers to over 160,000. He was profiled as a "Filmmaker Making a Social Impact" for his video work with Crimson by Authority Magazine and Thrive Global. Sam also occasionally does drag and teaches children Taekwondo (not at the same time). His sister has described his comedy as "mostly limbs."
