5 Stars! An authentic voice. Great storyteller. Funny and meaningful. 17 year old, 22 year old, and 50-somethings all found resonance. Just go for [email protected]&$s sake!

What a warm and inviting presence Sukh has. A thoroughly enjoyable hour which delves into dark times but with wit, fun and great humour - of course! An excellent funny story teller. I would totally recommend this show.

What a great story teller this lady is. Her show is a journey through an experimental experience in finding happiness interspersed with cultural references which are very funny. Second time I've seen this show and thoroughly enjoyed it both times.

Sweet monologue about mental health and parents...

Chortle (3/5 stars) 37 days ago

This is a dramatic monologue on being a depressed, suicidal, control freak, that elicits only sparse titters throughout. The show is a speech, a confession, a story of explicit therapy.

The Skinny (3/5 stars) 39 days ago

ThreeWeeks (3/5 stars) 44 days ago

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...

The Wee Review (3/5 stars) 47 days ago

Sukh Ojla’s debut solo show at the Edinburgh Fringe gets off to a promising start. She is energetic, engaging and has just enough audience interaction to take them along with her but not so much that it starts to become uncomfortable, a downfall of many a comedy star. She takes...

Fest (3/5 stars) 49 days ago

Sukh Ojla isn't the first standup to give her ayahuasca trip the posterity of a show, with Simon Amstell and Chelsea Handler only the most high-profile contemporary examples. Additionally, the likes of Carl Donnelly, Darren Connell, Myq Kaplan and Benji Waterstones have also reported back from the South American hallucinogen...
