A comedian who helped raise some of the biggest laughs at Dave's Leicester Comedy Festival will perform at Welford Road next month.

Ahir Shah has been nominated for the annual festival awards for his show Anatomy. He is on the four-act shortlist with the winner announced on March 17.

And the following night (Tuesday, March 18), Shah will perform at the second Try Tuesdays Try Comedy Night at the home of Leicester Tigers.

Shah will be joined on the bill by headliner Rob Rouse, comedian Chris Stokes and compere Lloyd Griffith for an evening of comedy, which is held in conjunction with Dave's Comedy Festival.

It will be held in the new Try Line Club in the Goldsmiths Stand at Welford Road, it promises to be an evening of top-class comedy. Tickets are priced £8, doors and the bar open at 6.30pm and there is a free pint of Everards Tiger, the official beer of the Leicester Tigers, for people arriving before 7.15pm.

Members of the Tigers squad and coaching staff warmed up for the Try Tuesdays Try Comedy event by delivering some of their favourite jokes. You can watch them on the club YouTube channel by clicking here.

The comedy night is the first of only three remaining Try Tuesdays supporter events this season.

They hit the road for Afternoon Tea with John Lewis, our first event away from Welford Road.

Hosted by the John Lewis store in Leicester's Highcross shopping centre, the event on Tuesday April 1 (3.30pm to 5.30pm) includes a choice of hot drink, a delicious platter of finger sandwiches, a selection of sweets and cakes, the chance to meet members of the Tigers squad, cake decorating workshop and a John Lewis goodie bag.

The Try Tuesdays programme ends with the annual Awards Night on Tuesday, April 29.

More than 500 supporters joined the playing squad and coaches in the Premiership Suite last season for the end of season awards dinner, with Julian Salvi crowned fans' Player of the Year.

Tickets for this year's event are £45 season ticket holders and members, and £55 for non-season ticket holders.
