SAMPSON / Press

“Sampson is truly a selfless and gifted comedian, and there aren't enough of them in the world.”

“Half activist and half comic, is known for tackling serious issues such homelessness, HIV, and hate crimes in his riveting and fresh routines.”

“Sampson is very comfortable in his own skin, feels that it is imperative for others to be happy and comfortable in theirs, and he is using his talents and abilities to be a teacher—a teacher about the importance of respecting others, appreciating everyone’s differences, and most especially having respect for yourself! Sampson is definitely the champion that you want on your side. He can teach life lessons through his comedy—he makes learning fun. He made the night hilarious and I feel that I’m a better person for having been in his presence.”

“Audience members can expect to be entertained thoroughly as McCormick draws upon his own life experiences and brings attention to important issues regarding race, culture, and sexuality in Black America.”

“trust me when I say…this bitch is funny.”

“On August 27, Sampson McCormick will become the first openly gay black male comedian to headline the historic Howard Theatre in Washington, D.C.”

"one of the 20 Greatest Gay and Lesbian Stand-Ups 2013"

“The award-winning funny man/writer/activist/babe has a knack for taking on serious issues — everything from coming out to gay conversion therapy to the realities of the black, gay porn industry — and infusing them with comedy, reminding us that no matter how crappy things may seem, the best medicine will always be a good dose of giggle.”

“Quick-witted and direct, Sampson spotlights and provides comic relief to the topics we all discuss among each other but blush about them in public including sexual behaviors, pornography, religion and pride.”

“McCormick will have you laughing so hard that buckets of tears will pour from your eyes”

“D.C. comedian and activist Sampson McCormick is continuing to use his platform to confront homophobia and dispel myths regarding gay and lesbian people in the African-American community.”

“I live for comedian Sampson McCormick. I love his witty, catty, and blunt comic situations.”

"His comic calling has continued, particularly with his show, Don't Make Me Take Off My Earrings, that's ventured into more serious territory – like getting an HIV test – but still with Sampson's humor shining through."

"Sampson McCormick is riveting, bringing to life the world as he sees it while splitting the sides of his audience"

Jamelle Thomas - Lodge Street Films Review

"Sampson is a DC-based comedian, writer, and activist who has been proving to the DC establishment that the gay community is not to be messed with. "

"mixes the silly with the serious, a staple of the comedian, (Sampson) who goes by just his first name"

Doug Rule - MetroWeekly

"mixes social commentary with personal experiences about the foibles of the black and gay worlds, which often collide, a point he uses for comedic effect."
