One-off show as part of Radio 4's season of Sunday night stand-up specials, which then became a series.

Tom Allen's calm and collected exterior image has collapsed, and he has finally realised that he is actually not very nice. With help from the assembled studio audience, Tom works out how best to navigate some tricky social situations and how to keep a lid on his fury when confronted with life's small injustices.
