Northbridge is home to many an intriguing venue, to say the least – there are lights, there are cameras, there are flashes, and there’s also that overwhelming sense of uncertainly regarding where to go. But when it comes to stand-up comedy, Planet Royale has you covered; all set to present their inaugural Planet Comedy affair.
Come Friday 28 October, Rove McManus will take to the stage alongside Planet Comedy’s host and esteemed comedian, Dave Callan. The duo’s ground control support crew will be three of Perth’s favourite comedians – Daniel Delby, Simone Springer, and Grant Mushet.
Daniel Delby is best known by winning Best Weekly Comedy Fringe World, co-hosting Sunday Singles and half of the Hard Yarns podcast returning from shows at Edinburgh and Sydney Fringe.
Likewise, joining the exceptional line-up is femme powerhouse Simone Springer, best known for hosting ABC morning radio and Sunday Singles, and is part of the award-winning comedy group the Motherhood.
And last, but not least is Grant Mushet, a Scottish comedian and winner of Best Weekly Comedy at Fringe World – best believe you’re going to be laughing the laugh of the century when Planet Comedy hits off.
An arcade competition will be kicking the night off, with the winner of the highest pinball score nabbing free tickets to the next show, followed by sets from said comedians, and lastly by the ‘best crowd joke’ competition from the aspiring comedians P-town.
The hilarious evening will be held inside The Royale Theatre, nestled at the back of the arcade game cladded, two storey mega venue – Planet Royal. The theatre is Perth’s first cinema turned comedy venue; where food and drink aren’t a second thought and retro pop culture oozes nostalgia from murals of pulp fiction to American psycho.
The Royale Theatre is a world class stage for comics near and far with cabaret tabling, cinema seating, VIP and VVIP booths, as well as a standing room right next to the in-theatre bar – Planet Comedy promises a big night of wheezy laughs with what is the first of the humour series.
