Thanks for visiting my corner of the internet. I'll get the kettle on while you take a look around.
My name is Sam Avery AKA The Learner Parent. I perform stand up comedy on the national UK comedy circuit. I did my first stand up gig in 2003 and have performed thousands of shows around the world since then as well as taking 3 shows up to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
I also write a blog about life as a twin dad that you can read under the 'blog' tab above. This has been featured in the national press and gone 'viral' (as the kids say) around the globe, being translated into over 15 different languages. I was approached by Orion Publishing in 2017 to write a book, 'Confessions of a Learner Parent' that has gone on to become a bestseller.
My stand up and writing experience has allowed me to become an extremely versatile performer, regularly hosting clean shows for kids and a Variety Lunch Club for pensioners, as well as the rowdy weekend clubs and the sportsman's dinner circuit.
I enjoy making radio appearances on BBC 5 Live, Radio 4, Radio 4 Extra, talkSPORT and my favourite station BBC 6 Music, where I'm a regular guest on the Steve Lamacq Roundtable show.
You can view all my clips, blogs, testimonials, press quotes and other stuff I've done using the tabs above.
