Ahead of his comedy show in The Laughter Lounge this Wednesday, we caught up with Tom Allen, the quick-witted UK comedian with an incredible sense of style.
Allen draws on his experiences as a gay man living with his parents to create a show that is uniquely funny and that LGBT+ people are instantly going to connect with.
Tom Allen’s show has a glowing review from UK’s The Independent: “The camply refined comic’s Afternoon Tea chat show was a highlight of this year’s Edinburgh festival, so it’s great to see his light-entertainment prowess being recognised”
With no subject matter too controversial, Allen is bound to get uproarious laughter from a Dublin crowd at his Laughter Lounge show, and with much of his humour accessible to an LGBT+ audience, it’s a show not to miss!
Check out his exclusive GCN interview below:
