Career

Youth

Amstell's first television appearance was in 1993 when he appeared as a contestant on the Channel 4 game show GamesMaster.[2][3][4]
He also appeared on Good Morning with Anne and Nick doing his impression of Dame Edna Everage.[5]
.Simon Amstell also appeared on an episode of Family Catchphrase in 1994. Amstell described himself as a budding magician and showed one of his tricks to the presenter, Andrew O'Connor, who was also a magician himself.^ I really loved Simon presenting the show.

[6][7][8] They won a television and a video recorder.
Amstell started performing on the comedy circuit when he was just 14 and later caught the eye of television executives by becoming the youngest finalist of the BBC New Comedy Awards in 1998.

Nickelodeon

His first professional television appearance was in 1998, as a presenter on the UK children's channel Nickelodeon. He claims he was sacked for being "sarcastic and mean to children"[9] although the potted biography on his website also, jokingly, claims:
"He started his TV career at Nickoledeon where he was fired for making pop stars uncomfortable. .He then began presenting the Channel 4 show, Popworld - where he gained a huge following for his groundbreaking work in making pop stars uncomfortable."^ Simon's star is rising following his stints on 'Popworld' and 'Never Mind the Buzzcocks' and we would highly recommend that you get in on the action before it's too late!

^ He always makes most of the celebrities he interviewed on Popworld feel uncomfortable and Girls Aloud even refused to appear on the show again.

Popworld

From 2000 to 2006 he presented Popworld on Channel 4 with Miquita Oliver. .He voiced the characters "Timothy the Popworld melon" and "Richard the Popworld horse". On Popworld he developed a highly ironic, surreal and left field style which gained the show a cult following, but angered many of its guests.^ Simon's star is rising following his stints on 'Popworld' and 'Never Mind the Buzzcocks' and we would highly recommend that you get in on the action before it's too late!

One such example was a mock interview with singer Lemar called "Lemar From Afar" in which Amstell shouted questions into a megaphone from one end of a car park while Lemar stood at the other end. Another was a "Si-chiatrist" interview with Luke Pritchard and Hugh Harris of The Kooks in which Amstell played the role of psychiatrist and Pritchard and Harris his patients. During his time at Popworld, Amstell was at the centre of several controversies, including making Britney Spears cry after asking her if she thought she'd "gone a bit nuts".[11]

Never Mind the Buzzcocks

Amstell's first guest appearances on the comedy pop quiz show Never Mind The Buzzcocks were on 27 October 2003 and on 20 March 2005. Amstell then took over from Mark Lamarr as host of the show with his first episode as host airing at the end of October 2006. He said at the time that he hoped to beat "the universal, exceptionless rule that when a new host takes over an old show it is a horrible, embarrassing disaster".[12]
.In March 2007, Amstell won the 2006 Royal Television Society Award for Best Entertainment Performance[13] for his work on Never Mind The Buzzcocks.^ Simon won the Royal Television society award for Entertainment presenting last night From their website Quote Entertainment Performance Simon Amstell - Never Mind The Buzzcocks TalkbackTHAMES for BBC Two "With a comic style that is irreverent, exciting and original, he has totally revitalised a long-running format to make it, once again, must-watch TV." He beat Harry Hill and Alan Carr/Justin Lee Collins.
