Ahir Shah: Dots (Ahir Shah)

By | Published on Tuesday 13 August 2019

Ahir Shah’s Fringe run has already sold out in advance, and it’s with good reason; Shah’s entertaining and erudite assessments of life have earned him much acclaim. In ‘Dots’ he’s taking a look at the bigger picture, trying to make sense of who he is and what he believes in. Being an adult has turned out to be much rougher than his younger self envisaged, and the world seems to be run by idiots that he can exert no influence over. From struggling to find the mental bandwidth to deal with all the crap in the news, to wondering when it will all get better, it’s all very easy to relate to. Shah’s inherent humour shines throughout, though there’s a slight undertone of melancholy that leaves you feeling both tickled and thoughtful.

Monkey Barrel, until 25 Aug.
