ABOUT

Ahir Shah is, at the time of writing, an award-winning and good 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 on the circuit 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, will debut at the 2017 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. 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.
