Ahir Shah: Ends
2023 Sky Edinburgh Comedy Award winner Ahir Shah comes to Komedia Brighton with his latest hour Ends: a show about family, immigration, marriage, history, politics, and beans.
His last Fringe show, 2019’s Dots, is now a special on HBO Max. As seen on Mock the Week, The Mash Report, QI, Live at the Apollo, Frankie Boyle’s New World Order, Have I Got News For You, and 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown.
‘The most important stand-up of the year, if not decade’ Stephen Armstrong
‘this is truly outstanding stand up’ ★★★★★ Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard
‘It’s clear why Ahir Shah won the Edinburgh Comedy Award with this remarkable piece of storytelling’ ★★★★★ Steve Bennett, Chortle
‘starts tugging heartstrings before he even sets foot on stage… has long been one of our most eloquent, thought-provoking comic voices… seemingly effortless way it weaves together the personal and the political into a big-hearted, uplifting whole’ ★★★★ Tristram Fane Saunders, The Telegraph
‘A beautiful, lyrical love letter… which deservedly picked up the Edinburgh Comedy Award this year… Shah is an electric performer, super-intelligent, his material densely packed with insight, yet never far from a gag… Ends leaves you uplifted, radiating positivity. In fact, its no exaggeration to say that Shah’s tribute to his grandparents should be on the national curriculum’ ★★★★★ Mark Wareham, Mail on Sunday
‘filled it up like a tornado sweeping in with a high energy set powered by a machine gun style delivery… great comedy set mixed up laughter, with deeply affecting silences… a master storyteller… all of this demonstrated why it was named best show at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe’ ★★★★ Asjad Nazir, Eastern Eye
* Show duration: 1 hour straight with no interval *
THIS EVENT WILL TAKE PLACE IN THE KOMEDIA STUDIO BAR
