Random House Audiobooks presents the audiobook of HELP. Read by Simon Amstell and packed full of live recordings taken from his stand up tours.

COMEDY, TRAGEDY, THERAPY

Simon Amstell did his first stand-up gig at the age of thirteen. His parents had just divorced and puberty was confusing. Trying to be funny solved everything.

Read by Simon Amstell, and interspersed with live recordings from his stand up tours, HELP is the hilarious and heartbreaking account of Simon’s ongoing compulsion to reveal his entire self on stage. To tell the truth so it can’t hurt him any more. Loneliness, anxiety, depression – this book has it all. And more.

From a complicated childhood in Essex to an Ayahuasca-led epiphany in the Amazon rainforest, this story will make you laugh, cry and then feel happier than you’ve ever been.

‘A beautiful and clever book about being human. All the warmth of his comedy without the inconvenience of his face.’ - Russell Brand

'Hard to imagine anyone not loving this... go Simon Amstell!' - Stephen Fry


‘Amstell is a likable, self-deprecating guide to his own flaws, and has spent enough time in therapy to dissect his own navel-gazing with a nicely dry self-awareness.’ Observer

Simon Amstell is a comedian, screenwriter and director. He wrote and directed the film Carnage, wrote and starred in the television series Grandma’s House, and his past stand-up tours include To Be Free, Numb, Do Nothing and What is This? He also hosted some popular television programmes but is now too pretentious to list them here.

A beautiful and clever book about being human. All the warmth of his comedy without the inconvenience of his face Hard to imagine anyone not loving this... go Simon Amstell! Disarmingly, almost alarmingly, honest. I laughed out loud 57 times No one makes loneliness and anxiety as funny as Simon Amstell. Every sentence in this book is simultaneously heartbreaking and hilarious Enrapturing. Touching, funny and sweet Expand reviews
