Ahir Shah: Control
In an age of global socio-political turmoil, Shah presents a show about freedom, fascism, complacency, complicity, 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. These days, the past appears to be winning. He’s got loads of jokes about it. ‘Burning passion at his fingertips and the gags to back up his fire’ ***** (List). ‘Excellent’ **** (Guardian).
Glenn Moore: The Very Best of Belinda Carlisle
‘Tipped for great things’ (GQ), Glenn Moore, from critically-acclaimed sketch comedy duo Thunderbards, returns to Edinburgh with a second ‘relentlessly silly and gag-laden show’ (List). **** (Herald, List, Edinburgh Festivals Magazine, ThreeWeeks, One4Review.co.uk). As heard on BBC Radio 4’s Sketchorama and Radio X.
