Simon Amstell, announces a month-long New York City run of his critically acclaimed new show, What Is This?, running June 1st through June 30th at Theatre 80 in the East Village.  Presented by WestBeth Entertainment. 

A deeply personal, funny exploration of beauty, intimacy, freedom, sex and love, What Is This? is Simon’s fifth show and received rave reviews on his sold-out U.K. tour last fall.

“His fifth and finest stand-up show.  Propelled in equal parts by real jokes and a real sense of emotional unburdening, this was an uplifting, effortlessly entertaining hour.”
– The Times ★★★★


“Wise and funny…a lovely hour that strikes a beautiful balance between perky and pained, anxious and ironic.”
– The Guardian ★★★★


“In What Is This?, Simon Amstell finds comedy gold in analyzing his existential angst.”
– Evening Standard ★★★★
