Tom Allen’s unique style of sharp, acerbic wit and camp, riotous storytelling has seen him become a household name in the UK. The last couple of years have been very busy for Tom, with him becoming the host of The Apprentice: You’re Fired, co-host of Bake Off The Professionals, regular on Bake Off: An Extra Slice and Alan Carr’s There’s Something About Movies, as well as numerous appearances on Mock The Week, Live At The Apollo, Hypothetical, The Royal Variety Performance, 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Cats Does Countdown, Would I Lie to You and Roast Battle. He has also been heard on BBC Radio 4 in his own series Tom Allen Is Not Very Nice, as well as Just a Minute, and is a regular co-host on Loose Ends.
Last year saw his tour sell out and be extended multiple times, including a twenty-night run at London’s Soho Theatre and an unforgettable sell-out show at his spiritual home, The London Palladium, which was filmed for Channel 4. There has been no let up this year, which has seen him tour to Australia for a sell-out run in Sydney and Melbourne, which saw him nominated for most outstanding show at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Awards.
As an actor he has starred in BBC Radio 4’s Sony Award winning Bleak Expectations, Comedy Central’s Threesome, BBC’s Sensitive Skin with Joanna Lumley, and Fear of Fanny with Mark Gatiss and Julia Davis. Film includes Colour Me Kubrick with John Malkovich, Starter for Ten with James McAvoy, and the Stephen Frears film Tamara Drewe.
