Your interviewer didn't really grasp the American term to "murder" a room, until he caught Sam Jay's set at SXSW Comedy earlier this year, in which she smashed the audience senseless with her unique perspective on race, sexuality and society. A breath-taking combination of unerring confidence, hammer-blow punchlines and genuine insight will see her reaching incredible heights in comedy. We talk about Boston, LA and New York, and why she has no time for comics who want to be adored.
