- Ahir Shah
Ahir Shah: Control Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee for Best Show, Ahir Shah explores the current global socio-political turmoil in a show about freedom, fascism, history, hope, and resistance.
Ahir's last show enjoyed packed runs 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 the resurgent worst of the past. He's currently trying to work out what the future now looks like in a time when the past appears to be winning. He's got loads of jokes about it.
