“The real deal. Where philosophy collides with anxiety: where Heidegger meets Woody Allen." - The Guardian
"Simon Amstell has a gift for taking a social norm and gently mocking it until it seems utterly ridiculous. Highly literate ... an endearing mixture of offhanded candor and sharp wit. Such ease and understatement makes him very good company." - New York Times
