A dinner party kicks off with the last guest to arrive, the oddly named Asparagus Tips. Upon introducing herself we soon gather that her name comes from her asparagus hands. After the starter doesn’t go according to plan she steps up to the plate, literally, and offers her tips for the party. A delicious delight that everyone wants more of, mostly at the disadvantage of poor Asparagus Tips.
Sam is an award winning film and theatre director from London with experience in proper-belly-laugh comedy – the kind that makes you snort milk out of your nose, even when not drinking milk.
After completing an art foundation at Wimbledon School of Art, he trained in direction at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama where he co-founded and continues to direct for Parrot in the Tank theatre company.
Sam was invited back to RCSSD to lecture, as well as lead a course in devised theatre soon after graduating, before heading to Paris to continue training at École Philippe Gaulier.
Whilst working as the video director for Tim Crouch’s collaboration with international clown troupe Spymonkey (The Complete Deaths), he was invited to direct comedy Graeme of Thrones.
The show had a month long sell-out run at the Leicester Square Theatre before embarking on a tour of the UK, Australia, New Zealand, America and Canada, before a run in London’s West End.
Asparagus Tips is his first film collaboration with renowned comedian and writer John-Luke Roberts, whom he has worked with numerous times before on theatrical shows.
