Sukh Ojla: Life Sukhs

Following her debut solo run at the Edinburgh Fringe 2019, Sukh Ojla brings her brilliant solo comedy hour to London.

Join Sukh as she tries to figure out how to move forward in reverse. From dealing with mental illness to moving back in with her parents, Sukh explores mental health, identity, and living a double life in a searingly honest look at what happens when life doesn’t go to plan.

Press & Reviews

“As poignant as it is funny... Sukh’s show can speak to you on many levels” ★★★★★ Funny Women

"Captivating stage presence...keeps the audience highly engaged." The Skinny

"Ojla's warmth and enthusiasm...keep you invested in her" The Skinny

Praise for Pyar Actually (2017/18)

Writer Sukh Ojla makes a relatable protagonist as Polly, a bolshy presence with a fine line in cringy comic awkwardness. Double cast as the softly-spoken Auntie Amarjit, she demonstrates impressive versatility, lending the older character a quiet, compassionate warmth with sharply observed mannerisms and consummately-performed physicality." (The Stage)
"...it’s Ojla herself – doubling up as both the reluctant Polly and Bali’s Call of Duty-playing, clucky “cleaner auntie” Amarjit – that really makes this show. A stand-up comic as well as actor/writer, her timing is superb. Thanks to her quick wit and compelling characterisation, there are plenty of laugh out loud moment" (Whats on live)
"Ojla plays Polly with a twinkle in her eye and a real flair for comic timing, without losing the ability to demonstrate the range of emotions necessary as she travels through the piece. She has a very expressive face which she uses to full advantage, both in the comic moments and the more poignant ones where a tear replaces the twinkle in her eye." (The reviews hub)
