Simon has recently finished a hugely successful tour of his most recent show To Be Free, in the UK and US. His previous stand-up show Numb toured to sell-out audiences around the UK and Ireland in 2012, as well as Australia and the USA. He also recorded a special performance of Numb at BBC Television Centre, which was broadcast on BBC2 and BBC4 in the UK and on ABC in Australia and is now available as a DVD.

2012 saw the release of the second series of the critically acclaimed BBC2 sitcom 'Grandma's House' which aired on BBC2, following series 1 which aired in 2010 to rave reviews.Written by Simon and long term collaborator Dan Swimer, the series stars Simon Amstell playing a version of himself.

His first break came as the presenter of Popworld - Channel 4's weekly pop programme. He was also the host of Never Mind The Buzzcocks on BBC2 for four series from 2006-2009. In his youth, Amstell was the youngest finalist of the BBC New Comedy Awards.

In May 2010 he recorded Do Nothing at Vicar Street in Dublin. A DVD of the show is now available in shops.

Simon has won an RTS Award as well as a Broadcast Award, two British Comedy Awards and was nominated for a BAFTA.

'A distracted 'mad professor' demeanour masking a dry free-wheeling wit'. The Observer

'Glimmering intelligence.' Independent On Sunday

'As close as you can get to a man emotionally and philosophically disembowelling himself on stage.' The Sunday Times

'Intellectually sophisticated, engagingly honest, genuinely accomplished stand-up'. The Scotsman

'Consistently witty and intelligent...perceptive and very funny.' The Stage 

'His showily neurotic but deliberately dry demeanour melding neatly into the existentialist .Amstell has intelligently got the audience to see the world his own way'. Metro 

'Amstell offers a probing cerebral show. He speaks for a disconnected, disengaged chunk of Britain, sitting in their own trendily furnished boxes waiting for the world- or some meaningful cause - to come bursting through their door. It doesn't.' The Independent

'Simultaneously challenging and playful, delivered with a wonderful sharp mind. It all points to an intelligent comic who is becoming better almost by the day.' Chortle
