FOLLOWING a sell-out and highly acclaimed run at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe, comedian Tom Allen is bringing his show Absolutely to Cirencester's Sundial Theatre this month.

Soaked in Tom’s signature waspish snobbery and self-aggrandising wit, 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 shares with us his up close and personal experiences of suburbia, especially since the Referendum and addresses the ‘diffilcult times’ we live in but were things better ‘back in the day’, when he was a kid and you could fit 15 kids in one car?

Tom has recently found some independence from his parents by passing his driving test but as insurance is too expensive he's been added to his mum and dad's policy for their Ford Fiesta Zetec (1.5 litre engine, 2006, five door, maroon, boot doesn't close).

It's not glamorous but he has been learning how to deal with road rage, motorways, as well as giving lifts to his mum and dad.

Despite all this Tom maintains that he's better than everyone else and whilst maintaining his delusions of grandeur he still manages to take swipes at people who claim to have their lives so much more together than him as he relishes the delicious details of status, class and the petty eccentricities of modern life.

Recently Tom has appeared on: 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, Live at the Apollo, The Great British Bake Off’s Extra Slice, The John Bishop Show, Virtually Famous and in the last year has also supported Sarah Millican around the world and sold out his Edinburgh and London runs.
