Simon Amstell  – Everyman Belsize

“This is my local,” agreed Simon as we took to the stage before a sold-out Sunday night house at Everyman Belsize. He was charming as ever in assessing his own merits as director and writer of his debut feature film Benjamin, far more withering about his acting skills – he left it to Colin Morgan to play ‘him’ this time. Simon told us about shooting in London, his love of working with actors, his struggles to get the film made, the casting process and working with James Righton of The Klaxons to make the music. A perfect, funny, charming, informative, Q&A that sent the audience out buzzing about Benjamin.
