WestBeth Entertainment Presents

Simon Amstell NUMB

May 4, 2013  8pm & 10pm

It must be something in the tea that makes him such a wickedly good comedian.
— NY Village Voice

With his first TV Special Do Nothing on BBC America, his hit BBC TV Series Grandma’s House, and his critically acclaimed international Numb theatre tour, no one is more successful at being awkward than Simon Amstell. The show sold out its American debut in New York last summer to rave reviews and was Standing Room Only in Los Angles and San Francisco. Audiences feel right at home while he skewers his own insecurities with sharp wit, quirky tone and a hopeful optimism, he confronts the anxieties of modern life that have left him Numb.

“From sex to supper, Simon Amstell has a gift for taking a social norm and gently mocking it until it seems utterly ridiculous. His most acute observations he delivers with an endearing mixture of offhanded candor and sharp wit. Such ease and understatement makes him very good company.” NY Times
