One small step for man, one giant leap for Perth’s comedy experience. Planet Royale presents: Planet Comedy, blasting off Friday 7th of July at 8pm headlined by Dilruk Jayasinha and hosted by Perth’s favourite comedian, Jon Pinder!
Dilruk is one of the most in demand headliners on the Australian comedy scene, with a reputation for consistently nailing his shows with his positive, upbeat brand of stand-up. Dil has been invited to perform all over the country as well as internationally, he appeared at the Sydney Opera House as part of the Just for Laughs festival, and in 2017 he completely sold out his run at the Melbourne Comedy Festival with his show The Art of the Dil.
Dilruk has recorded two hour-long stand-up specials, one for the ABC and the second for Amazon prime which was released globally in 2020. He also featured in Amazon’s smash hit program LOL: Last One Laughing Australia alongside Rebel Wilson.
Along with regular appearances on Network Ten’s Have You Been Paying Attention?, and Hughesy We Have a Problem, a recent debut appearance on ABC’s Spicks and Specks, and a recurring role in Channel Ten’s How to Stay Married, Australia has fallen for Dilruk’s charming and poised demeanour and he has quickly become a staple in Australian homes.
Most recently Dilruk warmed the hearts of viewers, making it all the way through to the semi-finals on Celebrity Masterchef – despite having only recently taught himself how to cook while being stuck at home during 2020.

Their ground control comedy support crew are 3 of Perth’s best comedians:
Mickey J and his eclectic blend of mime and musical comedy shine under the stage lighting and proves him a comedic goliath. If you’re the kind of person to boast seeing homegrown talent before their career skyrockets, I highly suggest getting down to see this man before the rest of the world falls in love with his charm.
Blake Richardson is a Perth born stand-up comedian, actor and presenter. Having recently finished a sold-out run of shows at Fringe Festival; Blake returns to the stage with his trademark mix of flamboyant, unhinged storytelling and hilariously silly observational humour.
Pony Knox has been touring nationally to sell-out crowds in the award-winning show ‘Mum’s gone wild,’ with Perth’s comedy trio, The Motherhood. As an accomplished solo performer (WA Raw Comedy finalist, UFC state finalist, The Couch FOXTEL, Gruen ABC), Pony is an exciting voice on the scene.
