- Ahir Shah is a comedian whose sharp, intellectual brand of stand-up features a blend of emotional frankness, poetic language, and jokes. His most recent stand-up show, Anatomy, was described by Fest as being "as thoughtful and compelling a show as you're likely to come across" at the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe. Here, Ahir presents a collection of new material in preparation of his next solo hour of stand-up. (Almost all of it will have been previously tested in comedy clubs over the last couple of months, so there's no need to worry unduly.) "Charismatic and of rewardingly cerebral approach" The Guardian "He is made for stand-up" The List. Matt Forde
- Following the success of The Political Party shows in London and a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe this year, Matt Forde brings his sharp topical stand-up to the Pleasance. Having appeared on Have I Got News For You, This Week (both BBC 1) and Russell Howard's Good News (BBC 3), don't miss your chance to see this "first class comic" (The Guardian).
