‘The most important stand-up of the year, if not decade’ Stephen Armstrong 

“this is truly outstanding stand up” ★★★★★ Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard   
“It’s clear why Ahir Shah won the Edinburgh Comedy Award with this remarkable piece of storytelling” ★★★★★ Steve Bennett, Chortle 

“starts tugging heartstrings before he even sets foot on stage… has long been one of our most eloquent, thought-provoking comic voices… seemingly effortless way it weaves together the personal and the political into a big-hearted, uplifting whole” ★★★★ Tristram Fane Saunders, The Telegraph  
“A beautiful, lyrical love letter… which deservedly picked up the Edinburgh Comedy Award this year… Shah is an electric performer, super-intelligent, his material densely packed with insight, yet never far from a gag… Ends leaves you uplifted, radiating positivity. In fact, its no exaggeration to say that Shah’s tribute to his grandparents should be on the national curriculum” ★★★★★ Mark Wareham, Mail on Sunday   
“filled it up like a tornado sweeping in with a high energy set powered by a machine gun style delivery… great comedy set mixed up laughter, with deeply affecting silences… a master storyteller… all of this demonstrated why it was named best show at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe” ★★★★ Asjad Nazir, Eastern Eye
