Never miss another 'Tom Allen' show
Absolutely: Tom Allen
The sharply dressed, well-spoken, disparagingly camp son of working class Bromley, Tom Allen continues his debut solo tour across the UK.
As seen on 'Mock the Week', '8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown' and 'Live at the Apollo'
In the last year, Tom supported Sarah Millican, sold out his London and Edinburgh runs and even passed his driving test!
“Riotous stuff, perfectly delivered.” - Scotsman ****
“The camply refined comic’s Afternoon Tea chat show was a highlight of this year’s Edinburgh festival, so it’s great to see his light-entertainment prowess being recognised.” - The Independent
Tom Allen is a comedian, writer and actor. He started as a stand up at the age of 22 and went on to win both So You Think You’re Funny in Edinburgh and the BBC New Comedy Awards in the same year. Since then he has honed his unique style of sharp, acerbic wit and camp, riotous storytelling by performing to audiences all over the UK and around the world.
Tom Allen is a wonderfully laconic anecdotalist, and bears an uncanny stage presence to what might be described as the love child of Kenneth Williams and Stephen Fry. He has a genius for digression and an ear for hilariously mundane comments and platitudes. A rare talent, indeed.
'I urge, nay demand – that you see him perform' (Three Weeks)
'Riotous entertainment... Allen is one of life's true eccentrics' (The Guardian)
'Tom Allen makes me reach for old-fashioned words like debonair and urbane. Blessed with crystalline enunciation and velvety, vocal warmth, he sounds as though he was born at the BBC' (Chortle).
Tom Allen was #2 in Ents24's Hardest Working Comedians of 2018 list.
