Double Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Ahir Shah (Have I Got News For You, Live At The Apollo, and The Mash Report) records his first special for HBO Max at the Vaudeville Theatre.

Featuring Shah’s signature blend of philosophical inquiry, personal examination, and sweet gags, DOTS is a stand-up show about the necessity, utility, and absence of certainty. Topics include Mexico, culture, politics, cigarettes, depression, adulthood, funerals, religion, children, love, and dead German sociologists. It is considerably funnier than it sounds.
