'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) 'Existential questions with belly laughs...Comedy is rarely as smart or adventurous as this' (Chortle) 'Masterful' (Metro).
