Simon Amstell announces intimate London shows

Simon Amstell

Intimate as in "small venue", not intimate as in "touching people up". Although play your cards right ...

Yes, Simon Amstell is performing his most recent and critically acclaimed show, Numb, from September 16-19. And the best bit is that the shows take place at the 80-seater Invisible Dot venue, (which has relocated from Camden to King's Cross). So this is whites-of-the-eyes stuff.

Tickets go on sale on Monday morning – the time and ticket link are yet to be confirmed, so keep an eye on this page or our Twitter feed in the next few days. The tour officially finished back in June, and these September shows are primarily so he can warm up for a TV recording of Numb, as he may be a bit rusty. Consequently, tickets are only £10. Still, if you're an Amstell fan or don't mind a bit of philosophical but gag-heavy stand-up, then this is a great chance to see a major name in a small venue.

Note that LiF reviewer Ben Clover described Numb as like a comedy Smokey Robinson: big hooks and sad stories and gave the bugger 4 stars.
