Simon Amstell: What Is This?
Following a series of critically acclaimed, sold out international tours, Simon Amstell begins his fifth stand up tour in the UK.
What Is This? promises to be a deeply personal, funny exploration of beauty, intimacy, freedom, sex and love.
'The real deal' - The Guardian
'Simon Amstell has a gift for taking a social norm and gently mocking it until it seems utterly ridiculous. Highly literate... an endearing mixture of offhanded candour and sharp wit. Such ease and understatement makes him very good company' - The New York Times
Earlier this year, Simon's Carnage premiered on BBC iPlayer. Set in a utopian 2067, the film looks back at a time when human beings ate other animals. "I have written and directed a film about veganism. I’m sorry," says Simon.
