Sam is a vegetarian. He considers his biggest achievement to be the fact that he is younger than thirty. He likes bashment music and strongly dislikes festivals involving tents (mainly for hygienic reasons, also because of the people). 

His comedic highlights include: receiving a four star review for his Edinburgh show, getting a part in the recent film Trishna (although it was a ten minute part, he now introduces himself as a professional actor), and being told that he needs more 'English jokes' by a racist outside of a pub in Bermondsey.
