Edinburgh Comedy Previews - Tom Allen + Andrew Ryan

Tom Allen
Tom 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. 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 and has also been made several appearances on 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, The Great British Bake Off’s Extra Slice as well as the John Bishop Show, Virtually Famous and Channel 4’s Comedy Gala at the O2 along with several appearances on Just a Minute including the 50th episode alongside Prince Charles.
 He has supported Sarah Millican on her sold out tour of Australia, New Zealand and the UK.
After a sell out run of his most recent show ‘Indeed’ at Edinburgh last year, Tom previews his new show at Riverhouse before heading up to the festival in August.
