Enjoy Celebrity Radio’s Tom Allen Interview BAKE OFF Presenter 2018…
Tom Allen is one of the most charming, warm and hysterical comedian’s of his generation.
Camp, sassy & full of wit, Tom’s new tour celebrates his individuality and struggle to confirm and fit in.
In May 2018 he hosts ‘Bake Off The Professionals’ on Channel 4.
No-one could take offence to Tom due to his beautiful rhythm, delivery & delicious use of flowery language.
Enjoy an exclusive interview with Tom & Alex via YouTube HERE:
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.
I laughed throughout. Tom’s show is a delightful self deprecating hoot.
It’s rare to see anyone look so confident and comfortable on stage. The ad-lib moments with the unfortunate punters on the front row were quite brilliant.
There’s a touching & captivating warmth and vulnerability about Tom matched with his acid tongue.
He makes childhood observations relevant whilst keeping it edgy & current.
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.
He recently made his first appearance on the BBC’s iconic Live at the Apollo.
Here’s Tom & Alex in Buxton on the 2018 tour:
He has also been making several appearances on 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, Mock the Week, The Great British Bake Off’s Extra Slice, Celebrity The Crystal Maze as well as the John Bishop Show and Channel 4’s Comedy Gala at the O2 along with several appearances on Just a Minute including the 50th episode alongside Prince Charles.
Last year he supported Sarah Millican on her sold out tour of Australia, New Zealand and the UK. He has also supported Josh Widdicombe, Romesh Ranganathan and Michael McIntyre.
After a sell out run of his show ‘Indeed’ at the Edinburgh Festival Tom recently brought it to the main space at London’s Soho Theatre before extending his current tour ‘Absolutely’ to even more places around the UK.
Like Minded Friends, the weekly podcast he records with friend and compadre Suzi Ruffell has now reached the hundreds of thousands in its listenership.
