Former host of Never Mind the Buzzcocks and cowriter and star of sitcom Grandma’s House, Simon Amstell did his first stand-up gig at the age of 13. His parents had just divorced and puberty was confusing – trying to be funny solved everything, and telling the truth on stage was a way to stop it from hurting.
Beloved for his honesty and hilarity on stage, Amstell reflects on his experiences of loneliness, anxiety, depression and how his ideas of what being a man means have changed, in this talk.
