Melbourne based comedian Sammy J is about to don scuba gear and perform to his toughest audience ever 

including sharks, stingrays and collection of other interesting sea creatures. All this in an effort to raise awareness

for a comedy charity gala being held on Thursday 15th July at the National Theatre in St Kilda.

On Wednesday 30th June comedian Sammy J will perform to the sharks at The Melbourne Aquarium.

Comedy gala In Stitches for Kids is in it’s 5th year and is organised by two Melbourne based charities, Big

Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) and Edmund Rice Camps (ERC). BBBS is Australia’s leading youth mentoring agency 

providing mentoring services to young people (7-25 years) in need of additional adult support. 

ERC is a non-profit organisation, providing camping experiences throughout Victoria for disadvantaged children,

families and more recently, for refugees and indigenous children.

Building on the success of the four previous events that have featured some of the best comic acts in Australia, this

years line up will include Claire Hooper, Lehmo, Justin Hamilton, Sammy J, Tahir, Damian Callinan, UK

sensation Jeff Green plus many more!

“At this gig heckling could take on a whole new meaning!” says Sammy J. “I can hardly swim, let alone entertain

marine life....this should be interesting!”

Carson White from BBBS said “we hope to raise over $30,000 on the night with virtually all the money going

directly to the two charities. We have had great support from the comedians over the years, all of whom have

donated their time. It should be another humour packed event!”.

In Stiches for Kids tickets are available via Ticketmaster.
