Ahir Shah – Original Review

Note: This review is from 2008

Review by Steve Bennett

Newcomer Ahir Shar is just 17 years old, and too shouty and exciteable for comfort. He literally bounces up and down on the stage, babbling away 19 to the dozen, unaware that you can bring too much energy to the performance.

It seems to be a distraction from the paucity of his material, which starts off about who he looks like, obsesses about John Prescott being fat and thinks Microsoft Word might be racist.

There are kernels of good ideas in some of his premises, but they’re not developed. Perhaps you can start comedy too young, as this is an act definitely needing more maturity in both writing and performance.
