Stand Up Comedian Simon Amstell Opens Up About being Gay, So Who's His Boyfriend/Partner?
Though the comedians have a closet full of humor they simultaneously have a closet full of secret’s hidden beneath it. No matter how mighty they speak before their audience comedians like Daniel Tosh, Aisling Bea, and Mark Lamarr have their own personal events which they never show to their fan followers.
But this is not applied in the case of Jewish comedian Simon Amstell who openly admitted about his sexual preference of being gay. Today, we shall go through the open book of stand-up comedian Simon and learn about his current boyfriend along with his ongoing work profile.
Is he currently dating any man? Or is he still holding to find one?
Actor Simon Amstell confessed about him being gay when he was 28 years old to the public. On an interview published by Mirror.Co.Uk on 20th December 2007, the actor admitted to being gay where he profoundly stated about identifying it at the age of 21 years old. He said:
“I was 21, I wasn't quite gay yet, definitely a geek, definitely in Essex. I hadn't come out to myself or anyone else. I was in denial and I thought if I didn't tell anyone that it wasn't real."
The actor firstly confessed about his feeling in his studio where nobody believed him while only one person acknowledged and heard about his transition. He said:
"I had to keep going on about it. I said it in the studio and only one person heard me."
Similarly, the interview reports the star breaking up with his long-term boyfriend in 2006 at the Edinburgh Fringe festivals. However, no confirmation regarding the report has been made by Simon. So, there is doubt whether to take it as a fact or just take it as a false news.
However, to make the gay news true Simon confirmed the news in an interview exclusively Posted on Youtube on 14th September 2012, where he claims himself as gay.

Simon has kept his relationship status secretive. He has kept his professional life and private life completely apart. Therefore, despite the actor has revealed about having a boyfriend Simon has not revealed any details on his man. As posted on Towleroad.com on 17th January 2015, he disclosed about having a great time with his boyfriend in France. He said:
“Even though it’s perfect, even though I love my boyfriend, I fall asleep next to him, I have a dream that I'm being seduced by this wet dungeon boy and not wet from water. Covered in lubricant. And I should have known it was a dream because it was too much lubricant."
In a stand-up comedy, Simon reveals about his relationship being authentic, true and honest. The actor also spoke about his past relationship being insecure and a bit of tacky.

Followingly, the stand-up comedian had worked and directed a short movie" William" depicting the role of a gay person making out with his boyfriend. He had shared the information through his Twitter account as posted on 30th April 2015 with his co-actor Alex Lawther.
That is an early news of 2015, where the actor is neither involved with his co-actor nor had been rumored to be dating him. While we are at the end of 2016, no news and updates regarding his relationship status have ever been identified.
