Ahir Shah – Famous Comedian | UK

Ahir Shah is one of comedy’s brightest new talents, whose sharp brand of stand-up features a blend of socio-political awareness, energetic delivery and jokes. Ahir took his debut solo show, Astrology, to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2011, where it was described by Spoonfed as being “a more accomplished offering than you will get from 90% of the more experienced stand-ups at this years Fringe.”

Since then, Ahir has graduated from Cambridge university, moved back to London, and recently got a pair of shoes back from the cobblers. In the summer of 2012, he appeared as part of The Comedy Zone – the Fringes longest-running and most prestigious stand-up showcase – at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Ahir is currently director of Pick Me Up Comedy, a live comedy sketch show created in 2012 by 5 fellow Cambridge Footlight students. The show is receiving great reviews as it tours the UK.
