Simon Amstell is currently working on the second series of the critically acclaimed BBC2 sitcom ‘Grandma’s House’ and an international stand up tour, ‘Numb’.

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.
