Sukh Ojla: For Sukh’s Sake (Noel Gay Presents…)

By | Published on Friday 9 August 2019

In her debut stand-up show, Sukh Ojla opens up about her life and mental health. As she touches on sensitive topics such as suicide, there are moments early on in the set where it feels a bit like a therapy session; however, the show comes full circle in her journey of self-discovery, tying up all loose ends. While there are some moments of laugh out loud comedy, much of Ojla’s set evokes smaller chuckles from the audience. Yet, her storytelling skills are unmistakable and she creates a safe environment, even having an audience member admit to using drugs. At the end of the routine Ojla shares her reason behind writing the show – it’s incredibly heartwarming and honest, revealing of a very caring and kind person. 

Gilded Balloon Patter Hoose, until 25 Aug.
