Ahir Shah: Control

  • Tue 26 Sep - Sat 7 Oct 2017, 7.30pm
  • From £9


Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee for Best Show, Ahir Shah explores the current global socio-political turmoil in a show about freedom, fascism, history, hope, and resistance.

Ahir’s last show enjoyed packed runs with us and at the Edinburgh Fringe, as well as going on a national tour. In it, he theorised that we were being tugged in contradictory directions by a potential brighter future and the resurgent worst of the past. He’s currently trying to work out what the future now looks like in a time when the past appears to be winning. He’s got loads of jokes about it.
