Tom Allen is a comedian, writer and actor. He started as a stand up at the age of twenty-two 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.
He is currently supporting Sarah Millican on her sold out UK tour.
Things have been ramping up for him lately and in the last three months he made his debut on Channel 4’s 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown and Radio 4’s Just a Minute. He also recorded the Edinburgh special of Loose Ends and was featured in Radio 4 Extra’s round up of the fringe. He also voiced Frankensend in E4’s recent hit series Bad Robots alongside Michael Gambon.
