Combining the most personal elements of What is This? and a little of Simon’s previous show To be Free, the two performances will be filmed for release at a later date. With intense vulnerability and honesty, Amstell promises a deeply revealing and funny exploration of beauty, intimacy, freedom, sex and love. 

Simon’s feature film Benjamin premiered at the London Film Festival in 2018 and was recently released in cinemas to huge critical acclaim. Simon’s first feature length film Carnage aired on BBC iPlayer in May 2017 and is still available to watch. 

Following a sold out UK tour with residencies in London and New York of What Is This?, his hugely popular debut book Help, was published by Penguin Random House. His previous stand up tours include To Be Free (UK & USA),Numb (UK, Ireland, USA & Australia) and Do Nothing (UK & Ireland). Simon has previously written (alongside Dan Swimer) and starred in Grandma’s House (BBC Two).
