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 is a regular on television and radio and has performed stand-up on Live At The Apollo, The Now Show and Stand Up Central. Outside of stand up, Ahir has been seen on shows including Have I Got News For You, Frankie Boyle’s New World Order, Mock the Week, The Mash Report/Late Night Mash, Guessable, Rob Beckett’s Undeniable and Catastrophe.
Ahir’s 2019 show Dots completely sold out at the Edinburgh Fringe and toured the UK ahead of an international release on US streaming platform HBO Max filmed at the Vaudeville Theatre. The show follows Duffer and Control which also sold out and were both nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Show and subsequently toured the UK and overseas. Most recently Ahir took his show, Dress, to audiences around the country.
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).

"Ahir was incredibly good at tailoring his set to the event, he captured the tone and mood of the event perfectly. He was so well-received by our audience with laughter filling the room throughout the entire set. We can't recommend Ahir enough, and it was great to have the opportunity to work with him."
