Phuket Comedy: Laugh away the low season blues



PHUKET: Stand-up comedy comes back to the island this Wednesday when three star comedians take to the stage at the Holiday Inn Resort Patong for a night of fun.

Hailing from Canada, the UK and Scotland, respectively, Paul Myrehaug, Jeremy O’Donnell and Brian Higgins are currently touring Asia, performing not only in Phuket, but also Hong Kong, Shanghai and Bangkok.

Canadian Paul Myrehaug is used to world traveling. Just last month he was in Kuala Lumpur; in March, he performed for the troops in Afghanistan; and for Christmas he spent the day aboard the HMCS VANCOUVER, entertaining the crew as the warship sailed off the coast of Italy.

Scotsman Brian Higgins was a paramedic before taking up comedy. He has since gone on to earn plaudits for his anecdotal style, including a description as the ‘people’s favorite comedian’ by industry rag The Stage.

The evening’s compere, Jeremy O’Donnell, spends as much time writing for hit TV and radio shows as he does performing on stage. His mix of lightning fast one-liners and observational humor has made him an audience and critic favorite, both in the UK and abroad.

Tickets are available at outlets around the island at the early-bird price of just 960 baht each, including Woody’s Sandwich Shoppes (Patong and Chalong), Shakers Patong, the RPM Health Club at Royal Phuket Marina and from event sponsor the Phuket Gazette who will even deliver them to you – free of charge.

Tickets at the door will be 1,200 baht. However, host sponsor Holiday Inn Resort Patong is offering two very special pre-booking deals.

The first provides a show ticket and dinner at Sam’s Steakhouse for 2,400 baht per person. The second deal includes the ticket, dinner and one night’s accommodation in a Superior room at the Holiday Inn for the incredible price of just of 8,550 baht per couple. Breakfast is included. To book, call 076-370200 and ask for Morgan.

So, an Englishman, a Scotsman and a Canadian walk into the Holiday Inn Resort….

Want to know the punchline? Then come along on Wednesday, June 27, at 8pm for the Phuket Punchline Comedy Night.
