Control - T01581226739

In an age of global socio-political turmoil, Shah presents a show about freedom, fascism, history, hope, resistance, and milk. Ahir's last show enjoyed packed runs at the Edinburgh Fringe, 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. He's currently trying to work out how to build that future in a time when the past appears to be winning. He's got loads of jokes about it.

Machines - T121633145

Ahir wants to believe in a future where democracy flourishes, technology liberates us from work, and we all get to rub our bellies in satisfaction at a job well done. However, he's also feeling powerless to enact change, alienated from his fellow lefties, and increasingly anxious about the state of the world after getting caught up in the Paris attacks. He's got a lot of concerns; fortunately, they're super funny. Combining questing polemic with hella sweet gags, MACHINES is a stand-up show about the uses and dangers of utopianism in a complex, fractured world. It contains an absolutely cracking joke about lizards.

Texture - T123895473

Using lyrical language, emotional frankness and top gags, Ahir Shah presents Texture: a stand-up show about adulthood, romance, drinking, loneliness, deer, and other things of that nature. It's real funny. Originally performed at the 2014 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Texture is an hour of thoughtfully constructed and compellingly delivered alternative comedy from one of the most inventive, perspicacious, and good young comedians working in Britain today. Running time: 60mins. Age Recommendation: 16+

Anatomy - T01377130569

One of the most erudite and spindly comedians working today, Shah originally performed Anatomy to critical and popular acclaim at the 2013 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Utilising the medium of Funny Jokes, the show is an hour of lucid, precise, exacting comedy about the body, the mind, society, language, knitwear, and - well, y'know, that sort of thing. Ahir thinks you'll enjoy it, but don't take his word for it - take the selectively quoted opinions of journalists you will probably never meet:
