Simon Amstell; What Is This?

As part of Harrogate Comedy Festival 2017

Presented by Mick Perrin Worldwide

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.

Simon Amstell Carnage, Grandma’s House, Never Mind the Buzzcocks has won two British Comedy Awards, an RTS Award, a Broadcast Award, a Chortle Award and has been nominated for a BAFTA.

Simon Amstell will be supported by Mawaan Rizwan

Mawaan is known for his absurd stand-up and captivating physicality. His YouTube videos have been viewed over 18 million times. He is also an actor - starring in the BAFTA-winning BBC3 drama Murdered By My Father, ITV’s Next of Kin and Simon Amstell’s Carnage.


'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 

'The real deal' The Guardian
