‘When I was 16 I dressed in Victorian clothing in a bid to distract people from the fact that I was gay. It was a flawed plan.’

Tom Allen‘s unique style of sharp, acerbic wit and camp, riotous storytelling has seen him become a household name in the UK. But you might not know that the working-class son of a coach driver, and the youngest member of the Noel Coward Society, grew up in 90s suburbia as the eternal outsider.

To celebrate the publication of his brand-new memoir No Shame, join Tom as he shares hilarious, honest, and sometimes heart-breaking, stories about his life and career. From observations about his childhood and adolescence, to the family he still lives with, and his attempts to come out and negotiate the gay dating scene, this is Tom at his most candid.

With his trademark caustic wit and warmth, this live stream event will entertain, surprise and move you in equal measure.
