TV’s Tom visits Telford

Following a sell-out run along with rave reviews at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe, Tom Allen, star of Bake Off: An Extra Slice, Mock the Week and 8 out of 10 Cats is touring the UK with his debut show ‘Absolutely’.

Tom’s signature waspish snobbery and self-aggrandising wit comes to the fore as he addresses the facts that he’s still living with his parents in Brexit-obsessed Bromley… because he can’t afford not to. He’s in Alan Bennett and Mike Leigh territory as he shares his up-close-and-personal experiences of living in suburbia, especially since the Referendum, and addresses the ‘difficult times’ we live in – but were things really better back in the day, when he was a child and you could fit 15 kids in one car – without seatbelts?

Tom Allen’s unique style of sharp, acerbic wit and camp, riotous storytelling has seen him perform all over the UK, Europe, Canada, America, Australia and New Zealand, and he’s visiting Oakengates Theatre on Wednesday 28 November – see for full details.
