Anyone who follows New York comedy knows Sam Morril and knows he is one of the most original voices coming up in comedy today. He’s dark, he’s hilarious and he’s fearless and he’s also a tremendous writer. “I Got This” spotlights Morril’s talent for hilariously stating the obvious to the oblivious, contrasting his everyman sensibility against the outrageous characters and situations he encounters as a touring comedian and native New Yorker. In “I Got This,” Morril uses his observational wit to speak on the low bar for being a good guy, refereeing fights between his loud neighbors, how captivating true-crime entertainment raises the bar for murderers, his untrendy rec-center gym, meeting a real-life Cleveland vigilante named The White Knight, and much more.
He is a regular on Comedy Central’s This Week at the Comedy Cellar, where he appears frequently when not touring cities across the nation. He was named one of Comedy Central’s Comics to Watch in 2011 and has performed multiple stand-up sets on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, The Late, Late Show with James Corden and Conan. He’s also had stints on Last Comic Standing, America’s Got Talent, @midnight with Chris Hardwick, and Inside Amy Schumer. In 2015, Morril recorded his debut album, Class Act, with Comedy Central Records, which went to #1 on iTunes and made numerous top 10 lists, and appeared on season four of Comedy Central’s The Half Hour. His first one hour special, Amy Schumer Presents Sam Morril: Positive Influence premiered on Comedy Central in 2018. Morril was the host of his very own show on MSG called People Talking Sports, which ran for two seasons and received an Emmy® nomination. Morril also has a cameo in the Academy Award nominated film, Joker.
