Heat oil in a heavy pot or deep fryer to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C).
Combine flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a medium bowl. Beat egg, milk, and melted shortening together in a small bowl. Stir egg mixture into flour mixture. Stir in corn.
Working in batches, drop fritter batter by spoonfuls into the hot oil. Fry until golden.
Remove fritters with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
