With his first stand up tour since the release of the internationally acclaimed feature film, ‘Benjamin’ and Netflix Special, ‘Set Free’, Simon Amstell brings ‘Spirit Hole’ to the Ulster Hall, 06 May 2022!
"The undisputed king of the stand up confessional” - Evening Standard
Born in Essex in 1979, Simon Amstell claims he had been planning for a career in television since he was 13. A series of appearances as a contestant on various shows paved the way for his proper debut on Nickelodeon aged 18.
When original host Mark Lamarr stepped down from the music panel show Never Mind The Buzzcocks, it seemed sheer serendipity that Amstell would take over. It offered him ample opportunities to continue to upset musicians, most notably Preston from The Ordinary Boys, who stormed off mid-episode after Amstell repeatedly read from his wife's autobiography.
Following his time on Buzzcocks, Amstell delved deeper into his own life experiences, particularly growing up gay in a Jewish family, to fuel his personal projects. The sitcom Grandma’s House, which ran for two seasons, was based on his own family, while his stand-up shows often took the form of incredibly funny and startlingly honest explorations of his mental health.
‘Spirit Hole’ is a blissful, spiritual, sensational exploration of love, sex, shame, mushrooms and more. If you yearn for a night of unprecedented joy and laughter, book now and avoid regret.
”No one zeros in on human comedy …. quite like Simon Amstell. He’s palpably having a great time. As indeed are his audience” - The Guardian
