Double Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Show nominee Ahir Shah is one of the fastest-rising comedians of his generation. Shah’s sharp, intellectual brand of stand-up features a blend of philosophical inquiry, political vigour, and sweet gags.
Ahir’s latest show Dots completely sold out at the Edinburgh Fringe and is currently touring the UK ahead of an international release on US streaming platform HBO Max. It follows Duffer and Control which also sold out and were nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Show, subsequently touring across the UK and overseas.
On television, Ahir has been seen performing on Live at the Apollo (BBC 2) and Stand Up Central (Comedy Central), with additional credits including Have I Got News For You (BBC1), Mock the Week (BBC2), Frankie Boyle’s New World Order (BBC 2) and Catastrophe (Channel 4). Ever well-versed in current affairs, Ahir has also featured on BBC2’s Newsnight and The Daily Politics, as well as Radio 4’s The Now Show.
Ahir has performed internationally at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the Adelaide Fringe and Just for Laughs Montreal, as well as having toured in continental Europe and India.
Outside of stand-up, Ahir has written and starred in the short films Ahir Shah’s Summer (Sky) and Ahir Shah’s Life Lessons (BBC Three), has developed two sitcom pilots for Channel 4, and has performed and regularly writes on The Mash Report (BBC 2).
