Sam Lake: Aspiring DILF
Written & Performed by Sam Lake, directed by Edinburgh Comedy Award Nominee, Lauren Pattinson.
With the rise of formerly beloved male celebs turning into ‘anti-woke’, ‘why aren’t men men anymore?’ toxic commentators on low-quality news outlets and podcasts, Sam has become scared of the man he may become in the future. So to combat this fragile masculinity, he’s embarking on a mission to ensure he becomes what he believes to be the last respectable form of a man, the Daddy. Following on from his acclaimed debut hour last year, Sam presents a show about the positive role models in his life that taught him to be a good guy. Who in his life has that BDE (Big Daddy energy)? Is it Claire, the office manager & Sam’s bestie? Join him on his journey to Daddy-dom, as he chats about Furbies, Butlins & scandalous interactions with a rugby team.
