Simon Amstell tour 2009, live dates announced

Never Mind the Buzzcocks host Simon Amstell is set to tour in the second half of 2009 – with live dates ranging from August until November – with his own stand-up comedy show.

According to his website, the Do Nothing tour starts with shows in Edinburgh between the 14th and 30th August.

Amstel then departs on a 35 date standup tour, covering about 30 venues around the UK and Ireland, finishing in London at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire, in November.

Ticket prices are available from the individual venues.


Simon Amstell has been a writer and a host for TV shows. He is perhaps best known as a television presenter and his career includes Popworld and the pop trivia program Never Mind the Buzzcocks (which he inherited from previous host Mark Lamarr). His previous stand-up comedy career includes appearances at the Brighton Comedy Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
