Never miss another 'Tom Allen' show
Society: Tom Allen
Multi-award winning comedian and TV presenter Tom Allen brings his hit chat show 'Tom Allen's Society' to Dave’s Leicester Comedy Festival! Tom will be talking to performers and celebrities as well as performing his own inimitable brand of stand-up. “Otherworldly… a delight of raconteurship” The Scotsman
Join Tom and guests for an anarchic but civilised evening of stand-up, chat and perhaps even a parlour game or two.
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 named in Ents24's top 10 hardest-working comedians 2017.
