Tom Allen announces 2023 tour

Completely revolves around him finally moving out of home

Tom Allen has announced new stand-up tour for 2023.

In Completely the 38-year-old comedian will be talking about how he finally moved out of his parents' house, and is now negotiating his vegetable patch and the protocol of inviting friends with children for dinner.

More than 40 dates have been announced for 2023, starting at the Frome Memorial Theatre on February 1 and wrapping up at the Ulster Hall in Belfast on June 9. As it stands, the tour avoids most big cities in favour of towns and smaller cities.

The news comes as it was revealed that he was writing a second volume of memoirs – and was announced as part of the line-up for this year’s Just For Laughs festival in Montreal.

Allen has also just stepped down from hosting Bake Off: The Professionals, which returned to Channel 4 last night.

When he announced the news in February, he said he had ’the best time’ on the show ‘bit now is the time to move on’. ‘It was my first TV presenting job back in 2018 and it has taught me so much, he added. ‘Thanks to the amazing team.’

Allen’s last tour, Absolutely, launched at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe and went on to sell 50,000 tickets, including his sell out show at The London Palladium where he recorded it as a special for Amazon’s Prime Video.

Tickets go on general sale at 10am on Monday.
