Simon Amstell is a fantastic stand-up comedian and his satirical stance and cutting wit make him an ideal host for award ceremonies and live events. He became a household name as the presenter of Popworld - Channel 4’s weekly pop programme and took over as the regular host for Never Mind the Buzzcocks for BBC2. In his youth, Simon was the youngest finalist of the BBC New Comedy Awards.

He performs regularly on the stand-up circuit and hosted his own sell-out show at the Pleasance during 2005's Edinburgh Fringe Festival. He returned to Edinburgh in 2006 with his first pure stand-up show resulting in rave reviews and sell out shows. He has toured the world with his comedy, bringing his show on Veganism to international audiences in 2017. He has also hosted several high profile events, including the Evening Standard British Film Awards in 2016.
