Show Information

In an age of global socio-political turmoil, Shah presents a show about freedom, fascism, history, hope, resistance, and milk. Ahir's last show enjoyed packed runs at the Edinburgh Fringe, the Soho Theatre, and a national tour. In it, he theorised that we were being tugged in contradictory directions by a potential brighter future and resurgent worst of the past. He's currently trying to work out how to build that future in a time when the past appears to be winning. He's got loads of jokes about it.
