Tom Allen is a household name; with his signature acerbic wit and riotous storytelling, he has cemented himself as a star on both stage and screen. He’s the hilarious host of The Apprentice: You’re Fired, he co-hosts Cooking with the Stars, and is also a regular on The Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice and Alan Carr’s There’s Something About Movies...
Too Much, a new book by award-winning comedian Tom Allen will publish in hardback and audiobook on 10th November 2022. Following the success of Tom’s first memoir No Shame, which has sold over 100,000 copies across all formats since its November 2020 publication.
In Too Much, with his trademark wit and insight, Tom Allen takes a funny and moving look at how he’s been thrown into adulthood, as he finally leaves the family home and starts a relationship with a new boyfriend. He shares his unwillingness to move on from the arrested development of millennial life.
But ultimately, he has to grow up fast in the wake of the unexpected death of his father in late 2021. The book becomes an emotional ode to his beloved dad and how you learn to navigate grief. Tom writes beautifully about those days, weeks and months following his family’s bereavement, and how bewildering the minutiae and practicalities of life can be when you’re harbouring a loss, and life can all feel all too much...

Tom's memoir No Shame is now published in hardback, paperback and audiobook.
No Shame is an hilarious, candid, emotional ride of a memoir where the UK’s best and brightest stand-up comedian and presenter Tom Allen writes with humour and insight about his life, his loves and the shame of being ‘an outsider’ growing up in 90s suburbia.
Tom has always looked and behaved like a Victorian dandy even when he was 10 years old. Growing up in suburban Bromley, he stuck out even more. In these comic and heart breaking stories, Tom recalls observations on childhood, his adolescence, his family dynamic and living with his parents into his thirties, all through the candid lens of his experience as a closeted/out/not active/still trying gay man.
