Nominated for Best Show at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards in 2017 and 2018, Ahir Shah is on tour again with his new stand-up show Dots. Featuring Shah’s signature blend of philosophical inquiry, personal examination, and sweet gags, Dots is a stand-up show about the necessity, utility, and absence of certainty. Topics include Mexico, culture, politics, cigarettes, depression, adulthood, funerals, religion, children, love, and dead German sociologists. It is considerably funnier than it sounds.
Shah’s last show, Duffer, was performed to packed houses and critical acclaim at the 2018 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, followed by a sold-out run in London’s West End, and a UK and international tour.
‘Tremendously thoughtful, woundedly candid and self-laceratingly funny.’★★★★ Scotsman
As seen on Have I Got News For You, Live At The Apollo and The Mash Report.

'For passion, intelligence and gag-writing expertise, Ahir Shah is positioned permanently on the winner's podium.'
'A captivating and poetic storyteller...the hour is packed with satisfying, well earned laughs.'
