Ever since Popworld, Amstell has come across as a highly intelligent yet awkwardly anxious geek – and his stand-up is no different.

From his grandmother's "in-authentic sycophancy" to his withering putdown of a member of the Dublin audience – "Goatee beard, eh? Think that's going to help? We're all still going to die, you know" – Amstell reveals himself to be a comic of great timing, smooth links and devastating metapsychoanalysis.
