Classic Interview: Ahir ShahHBO Max Show

Double Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee for Best Show in 2017 and 2018, Ahir Shah is set to record his HBO Max stand-up comedy special Dots at the Southbank Centre on Tuesday 31st March. The show will be captured over two performances at 7pm and 9.30pm. Tickets will go on pre-sale on 6th February and on general sale on 7th February.

Featuring Shah’s signature blend of philosophical inquiry, personal examination, and sweet gags, Dots is his critically acclaimed new 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.

Ahir is currently touring with Dots, which made best of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe lists including The Guardian, The Times, The Daily Telegraph and The Scotsman. An internationally acclaimed comedian, Ahir has performed comedy across the world including tours of the UK and India and runs at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Just for Laughs comedy festival in Montreal.

On TV and radio, Ahir’s recent appearances have included Live at the Apollo (BBC Two), Have I Got News For You (BBC One), Frankie Boyle’s New World Order (BBC Two), The Mash Report (BBC Two), Stand Up Central with Rob Delaney (Comedy Central), The Big Asian Stand-Up (BBC Two) and The Now Show (BBC Radio Four), written and starred in Ahir Shah’s Summer (Sky Arts) and Ahir Shah’s Life Lessons (BBC Three), and has appeared in Live at the Electric (BBC Three) and Campus (Channel 4).
