Sam Allemang is a writer, web developer, podcaster, indie game-dev and non-profit founder based out of Hamilton, ON.

I am a web developer (day job) and humour writer (hobby job or “hobjob”) from Toronto, ON, living in Hamilton, ON. I studied Classics and English at University of Toronto and owe ~$37k to the fine people of the National Student Loan Service Centre for this extremely edifying privilege. I wish them nothing but the best. May they glut themselves the meat on my carcass since that’s clearly their raison d’être. Ach du lieber, who am I kidding?! A pox on all their houses!

But, anyways: I’m the co-creator of the sketch comedy podcast Spooky Radio, as well as its accompanying blog, and graduated Second City’s 6-level Sketch Writing course (Toronto), and Podcasting and Satire Writing courses (online). I’ve been a punk rock musician, game writer/developer and non-profit founder as well. All of which is to say: give me money to do cool stuff.

A little bit about me, my background and the things I’ve been working on.

I am a graduate of Second City’s sketch program who writes silly humour pieces

I wrote and programmed a fun RPG game about a pirate cat, Captain Toby. (Some NSFW language.)

I (occasionally) blog about literature, share favourite quotes, and translate French poems.
