Sam Tripoli views comedy as a calling rather a profession. It’s a passion that he preaches to audiences at comedy clubs across the country and on television. In 2014, Tripoli’s 2nd album “Believe In Yourself” went to #2 on iTunes in America and #1 in Canada! His TV Credits include Showtime’s “Live Nude”, “Russell Peters’ Comic Without Borders!”, E!’s “Love You, Mean it! With Whitney Cummings,” CMT’s “The Josh Wolf Show,” Comedy Centrals’ “Premium Blend” (receiving only one of two standing ovations in the history of the show), a frolicsome turn as a male escort for E! Entertainment’s “Party @ the Palms,” “The Late Late Show on CBS”, “Comics Unleashed”. He was also a co-host of Spike TV’s hugely popular “Wide World of Spike” and “Bellator MMA Digital!” Tripoli has been heard on The Howard Stern show, The Jason Ellis Show on Sirius Radio, and also regularly appears on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast. Tripoli hosts his own very popular radio show called “The Naughty Show” on PlayboyRadio as well as his mega popular All Things Comedy “Punch Drunk Sports” podcast with co- host Ari Shaffir of Comedy Central. Sam’s writing credits include The 2012 MTV Movie Awards, Comedy Central Roast of Joan Rivers and Pamela Anderson, The 2011 World MMA Awards and most recently his Roast Of The Iron Sheik jokes were quoted in Rolling Stone Magazine. On stage he’s a force of nature, pacing the stage like a cyclone of funny as he questions authority and the conventions of our society one moment, then earnestly expressing his affinity for bizarre the next. His comedy has no limits – its whatever he’s thinking about, and that’s usually what everyone else is thinking about, even though sometimes we don’t like to admit to it. “I like to think of myself as the little voice in everyone’s head, except I have a microphone and I’m funnier,” Sam says.
