FEATURED ACT
Ahir Shah

Tuesday 27th February 2018 at Aces & Eights »

Ahir Shah is, at the time of writing, a funny and good stand-up comedian. He began doing comedy occasionally at the age of fifteen (i.e. too young), and over the course of the last decade his status has skyrocketed from "curiosity" to "interloper". Shah's sharp, intellectual brand of stand-up features a blend of philosophical inquiry, political vigour, and sweet gags.

Ahir's most recent show, CONTROL, debuted at the 2017 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where it was nominated for Best Show at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards.

In an age of global socio-political turmoil, CONTROL is a show about freedom, fascism, complacency, complicity, resistance, and milk. Ahir's last show, MACHINES, enjoyed packed houses at the Edinburgh Fringe, the Soho Theatre, and a national tour. In it, he theorised that we were being tugged in contradictory directions by a potential brighter future and resurgent worst of the past. These days, the past appears to be winning. He's got loads of jokes about it.

"A call to arms against political complacency"

★★★★ The Guardian

"One of his generation's most eloquent comic voices"

★★★★ The Daily Telegraph

"Fiendishly clever and furious"

★★★★ The Times

★★★★ The Sunday Times ★★★★ The Scotsman ★★★★ The List
