Double Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Ahir Shah is set to embark on a brand-new tour with Ahir Shah: Dress, following his critically acclaimed stand-up show Dots, which he performed nationwide including a sold out run at London’s Soho Theatre in 2019, and more recently recorded at London’s Vaudeville Theatre for his HBO Max stand-up comedy special. Back and raring to go, Ahir kicked off his run of dates on 19th November 2021 at Swindon’s Arts Centre and will finish in Bristol at the Hen and Chickens on 10th March 2022.
Featuring his signature blend of philosophical inquiry, personal examination, and sweet gags, Ahir returns to stand-up with a new show about significance, insignificance, and scurvy. His last show, Dots, was recorded as a special for HBO Max (albeit after a 14 month delay brought about by events you may recall). That show was about uncertainty. Ideally, this tour will end in a way that is less on the nose.
An internationally acclaimed comedian, Ahir has performed comedy across the world including tours of the UK and India and runs at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the Adelaide Fringe and Just for Laughs comedy festival in Montreal.
As seen on Mock The Week, Live At the Apollo, Have I Got News For You, and The Mash Report.
