Tom Allen plays football for the first time

Having never had what you would consider a 'normal' Bromley boy childhood, Tom Allen is back in South East London to try his hand at a bit of football in the park.

Featuring: Joel Dommett & Iain Stirling.


Six standups you probably haven't heard of shuffle on to a vintage minibus for a tour of their respective home towns. First stop is urbane comic Tom Allen's manor of Bromley, where the group enjoy a kickabout in the park and a WKD Blue-powered house party. It's a fun premise ruined by some overly staged "antics".

Gwilym Mumford, The Guardian, 10th April 2019
