The caustic and confrontational wit of Simon Amstell has been on view for all to see for the best part of ten years, beginning with Channel 4's Popworld, continuing through several seasons of Never Mind The Buzzcocks before settling into a stand-up career which pretty much started at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2005 (and most years since).
Although his first UK tour was in 2008, the 'Do Nothing' tour has been his most successful and with new material waiting to be honed and completed, it's time to say goodbye to this era of Simon Amstell.
'Do Nothing' will therefore be concluded with 5 London gigs in November 2010 starting with four nights at the troubled 100 Club on 10th/11th/16th and 17th before heading off for, what must surely be, a final night at the Shepherd's Bush Empire on the 22nd. Naturally demand will be very high and tickets are on sale now, priced at £20 (for Shepherd's Bush).
The tour itself has been recorded for DVD release, due in the weeks running up to Christmas (22nd November, strangely enough).
Amstell will rejoin the comedy-circuit sometime next year.
