Ahir Shah: Machines

Date:Fri 20 Jan

Ahir Shah brings his hit stand-up show MACHINES to Cambridge Junction following a critically acclaimed sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe. 

Amid the chaotic tussles of the present, Ahir wants to believe that optimism, ambition and hope will take us to an open, tolerant, liberated future; however, after witnessing the global rise of the far-right and finding himself caught up in the Paris attacks, he’s got a lot of concerns. Fortunately, they’re super funny.

MACHINES is a philosophical comedy about what is, was, and might be. It contains an absolutely cracking joke about lizards.
