What does it take to be a class act? New York City comedian Sam Morril can tell you, but you may not like the answer. In fact, the self-deprecating, sarcastic nature of his darkly humorous comedy is perfectly expressed in the title. Now he’s bringing his act to Santa Fe, filled with blunt cynicism and a hilariously edgy perspective to dating, friends, and other real-life experiences. Catch Sam Morril at the Lensic Performing Arts Center on Friday, June 23, 2023, 7 p.m.
