Absolutely: Tom Allen

Soaked in Tom’s signature waspish snobbery and self-aggrandising wit, Absolutely addresses the elephant in the room that Tom is still living at home with his parents - because he can’t afford not to
– in Bromley, Kent – heart of leave voters and Theresa May’s Brexit Britain. He’s always at home in Alan Bennett and Mike Leigh territory as he shares with you his up close and personal experiences of suburbia, especially since the Referendum.

Tom addresses the ‘diffilcult times’ we live in but were things better ‘back in the day’, when he was
kid and you could fit 15 kids in one car?

Tom has recently found some independence from his parents by passing his driving test but as
insurance is too expensive he's been added to his mum and dad's policy for their Ford Fiesta Zetec
(1.5 litre engine, 2006, five door, maroon, boot doesn't close). It's not glamorous but he has been learning how to deal with road rage, motorways, as well as giving lifts to his mum and dad. 

Despite all this Tom maintains that he's better than everyone else and whilst maintaining his delusions of grandeur he still manages to take swipes at people who claim to have their lives so much more together than him as he relishes the delicious details of status, class and the petty
eccentricities of modern life.
