A true star of live children’s entertainment, Sam Moran is the only performer to have starred on both ABC and Nickelodeon. Known to parents and children worldwide as the ex-Yellow Wiggle and Nick Jr.’s Play Along With Sam, no other talent can guarantee greater family audience response.
With the Wiggles, Sam toured the world 10 times over, including an unprecedented 18 sold-out shows at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. With almost 1 million tickets sold annually to live shows, Sam’s 10 years as the Yellow Wiggle were filled with tours to the United States, Canada, United Kingdom & Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore & the Middle East.
With a young family of his own, and adult-contemporary album available worldwide through Sony Music, Sam has entered a new chapter of his professional and personal life. 2013 saw the world premiere of Sam’s new television series, Play Along with Sam, which is religiously screened in a dedicated weekday morning music block wrapped around Nick Jr.’s top rating programmes. Sam leads his young viewers on a playful journey through movement, music, letters, wordplay, imaginative games and problem solving – all firmly grounded in the Nick Jr. ‘edutainment’ philosophy.
2013 also saw Sam Moran announced as the first official ambassador of The Sebastian Foundation, following assuming the role as national ambassador for Variety Children’s Charity.
