Some cute videos of Simon Amstell attempting to get to grips with Twitter before his 'Numb' tour here!
20 December 2011 @ 01:58 pm
Hello everyone!

- First off - and this is old news, so you might all already know, but anyway - Simon announced his 2012 tour, called 'Numb'.  Tickets can be bought here (they did go on sale a while ago, so I hope you haven't missed out - I bought mine on the first day for fear I wouldn't get one).  Apparently he is also going to Australia. I am so excited about this.

- Secondly - the second series of 'Grandma's House' has finished filming and is to be shown on TV next year.  I honestly didn't think this was going to get a second series, for the reason that things I love always seem to get cancelled, so I'm ridiculously pleased about this.

- Third - Simon features quite a bit in Alan Yentob's 'Imagine; The Art of Stand-Up'.  It's pretty interesting even without Simon's bits, but his interview is lovely, and it's fairly obvious that out of all the comedians featured, Alan Yentob respects Simon's work the most, which is nice.  If you're in the UK, you can catch up on the iplayer here.  If you're not in the UK, I'm sorry (although I am in the middle of transcribing Simon's bits (with screencaps!) so if you want them just shout). Part Two is on tonight.

- Also: 'Do Nothing' is being shown on BBC3 on Thursday evening at 10.30pm.  Even though I own the DVD and have seen it multiple times, I'll still be watching.  Intelligent comedy at it's best.

Happy holidays!

Hi everyone!  Just thought I'd let you know about a couple of things I've seen recently about Simon:

i) The second series of 'Grandma's House' has started filming!  This blog entry is written by a man whose mum owns the house that is being used as 'grandma's house'.  He's not too complimentary about the series, but whatever - not only is there a picture of Mr Amstell, but it's also good to hear things are moving! :D 

ii) Remember that film Simon's in, 'Black Pond'? It's got picked up to be shown at the Raindance Film Festival in a week or two.  The festival promotes independant British films.  The page for the film at the festival can be found here - it's got showing times and ticket sales.  If I were nearby, I'd definitely be going.

Hi all!

So, remember a few months back and I was wondering about those watermarked photos?

Well, I've found a couple here: http://www.palhansen.com/joomla/.  They're quite lovely. :-)  Enjoy!

Simon, apparently, is starring in a film.

'Black Pond' - starring Chris Langham and Simon Amstell, from 'The Independant', 10.04.2011

Jokes, I thought; surely not.  But then:


Thoughts? Opinions? Squee?

ETA: the official website for the film is here: blackpondfilm.com

Hi all!

I came across these photos of Simon the other day; apparently they're all from a shoot by the photographer Pal Hansen for Times UK last November.  Sadly, they're covered in watermarks, and I can't find any more info - was there an interview too? 

So, hence the request: does anyone have a copy of the photos (without the watermarks), or any more info? 

Thanks in advance. :-)

Samples of the loveliness:

Grandma's House to return!

According to the 'British Comedy Guide', Simon and Dan Swimer are currently writing six new episodes, which are expected to be filmed near the end of 2011.  Good news or what? :D

EDIT: Chortle has a slightly different article here, if anyone is interested in it. :)

Simon's done another radio interview - this time with Richard Bacon on 5Live.  You can get the podcast free here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/podcasts/series/dailybacon.  I haven't listened to it yet, but maybe someone here might be interested in it.  Isn't Simon getting to be quite sociable, with all these interviews? ;)

(I'm quite new here, so hello everyone!)

Just in case anyone is interested, Simon is being interviewed by Kirsty Lang on BBC Radio 4's 'Front Row' tonight (2nd December) at about 19.15. 


Sounds like it should be quite a nice listen, no? :-)

VERY new member of the comm. Also new to the Simon Amstell fanclub generally - I've always loved him in Buzzcocks but never really concentrated much on it, but now Grandma's House is awesome and I decided to go back and watch all his episodes of Buzzcocks.
Anyway, I was just wondering, cause there aren't so many helpful tags in this comm haha, has anyone made screencaps? And I mean of ANY episode at all, of Buzzocks or Grandma's House. I'm desperate to make icons, but there's no resources for me *sob*.

Nobody else appears to have posted caps for this series yet so I thought that I would. These are not brilliant screencaps but they are indeed screencaps and they're acceptable for icons and things.
