Following a total sell-out and very highly acclaimed run at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe and a sellout UK tour in the Spring and Autumn 2017, TOM ALLEN is back out on the road with his debut tour show, Absolutely.
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 us his up close and personal experiences of suburbia, especially since the Referendum.
Tom addresses the ‘difficult 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?
The last year has been incredibly busy for Tom with him starring in BBC1’s Wedding Day Winners, BBC2’s Mock The Week, Live At The Apollo, Extra Slice, Strictly – It Takes Two, ITV’s ‘Royal Variety Performance’, Channel 4’s 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, Comedy Central Roast Battle, 8 Out Of 10 Cats and Radio 4’s Loose Ends and Just a Minute.
- Tom will play three dates in Wales during June. Caernarfon’s, Galeri on June 9 (Call 01286 685 222), Carmarthen, Lyric Theatre on June 15 (call 0845 226 3510) and Abergavenny’s, Borough Theatre on June 18 (Call 01873 850 805).
