ULVERSTON’S hit comedy club Planet Mirth has managed to bag five of the finest acts from this year's Edinburgh Fringe for another laughter-packed evening of stand up at the Laurel and Hardy Museum on Saturday (October 5).

Host for the evening will be Ada Campe whose show The Psychic Duck sold out most nights of its month long Edinburgh run, notching up four and five star reviews.

In 2018 Ada won the prestigious New Act of the Year Show (NATYS), the Leicester Square Theatre Old Comedian of the Year competition and was shortlisted for the 2019 Chortle Awards in the Variety category.

Apparently, Sandi Toksvig is a big fan and said that Ada Campe made her laugh more than anyone on the circuit for years: "Genius,” she enthused.

Also on Saturday's bill is Singaporean comedian Jinx Yeo whose sets combine clever punchlines, self-deprecating humour and witty one-liners that pack a punch. He has acquired nearly half a million followers and 21 million views on Facebook for his Asian Nerd Roasts the British stand up routine. Jinx’s effortless delivery and clever material won him first runner-up at the Hong Kong International Comedy Festival (2011) and made him a finalist in the America Meet World Global Comedy Competition (2014).

Planet Mirth also welcomes Chris Stokes, a former RSPCA van driver who hails from the south west. His act has been described as playing on social misconceptions and dismantling them on stage via gag-packed first-hand anecdotes told with a charming and offbeat sincerity.

Chris has supported Milton Jones and Jason Manford among others on nationwide tours, has appeared on BBC Three, Dave and Radio 4 and was named on the BBC Talent Hotlist. He has taken five solo shows up to the Edinburgh Fringe, the first of which won best show at the Dave's Leicester Comedy Festival Awards in 2012.

Since starting out in January 2014 Mike Dryburgh has quickly established himself as a promising newcomer with a likeable personality and an ability to poke fun at himself and the situations he lands in. His anecdotal material conceals wordplay and some sharp one liners whilst remaining conversational. In 2015 he was nominated for the Birmingham Comedy Festival Breaking Talent award, Nottingham Comedy Festival Best New Act and Best Newcomer at the Midlands Comedy Awards.

Headline act for the evening is former Holsten Pils Comedian of the Year, Steve Shanyaski. Steve rapidly established himself throughout the UK as a top choice for all of the major comedy venues and promoters, including the Comedy Store, CSE, Glee Club, and Jongleurs.

His whirlwind performances and thrilling routines have consistently proven a hit with even the quietest crowds. He has performed his comedy throughout the world: to an audience as diverse as bikers in a field, to royalty in a theatre, and never ceases to go down a storm.

Combining surreal observations with wildly tangential imaginings, his off kilter set pieces have audiences fully immersed in ‘Stevie World’ as he leads them, Pied Piper-like down the charming avenues of his inner mind.

Tickets for Saturday night's Planet Mirth comedy special are available from the Laurel and Hardy Museum, Brogden Street, on 01229-582292 or via facebook.com/planetmirthcomedy.
