Following a sold-out UK tour and residencies in London and New York, the UK’s Simon Amstell returns to Melbourne for the first time since 2012! What is This? is a deeply personal, funny exploration of beauty, intimacy, freedom, sex and love.
A prolific comedian, presenter, screenwriter and actor, Simon may be best known as the host of 'Never Mind The Buzzcocks’ and star of sitcom 'Grandma’s House'. In his stand-up he has always worn his heart on his sleeve, honestly and intimately exploring his own insecurities on stage. The 2019 Simon is happier and perhaps a little wiser, but remains a thoughtful performer, marvellously funny and profound in equal measure.
‘Wise and funny… strikes a beautiful balance between perky and pained, anxious and ironic’ The Guardian (UK)
‘His fifth and finest stand-up show. Propelled in equal parts by real jokes and a real sense of emotional unburdening, this was an uplifting, effortlessly entertaining hour.' The Times
