Never miss another 'Ahir Shah' show
Shah And Kumar's Christmas Hoo-ha: Ahir Shah, Nish Kumar
"Ahir Shah and Nish Kumar perform a bunch of new material. Ahir went to Edinburgh this year, so his new material will be decidedly shaky. Nish didn’t go to Edinburgh this year, so his “new” material will be almost unacceptably polished. Still, it’s all for charity, so quit complaining.
Ahir has been nominated for Best Show at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards once. Nish has been nominated for Best Show at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards twice, making him officially twice as funny as Ahir and two-fifths as funny as James Acaster.
Free entry with Pay What You Want donation.
All proceeds will go to the housing charity Shelter."
