Stand Up For The Weekend

with Tom Allen, James Sherwood & Fin Taylor this Saturday

Tom Allen

Saturday 4 October 8.45pm £12

TOM ALLEN

with JAMES SHERWOOD plus compere FIN TAYLOR

Hen & Chicken, Bristol

"Riotous entertainment... Allen is one of life's true eccentrics" The Guardian

No one has Tom Allen’s skewed view of the world, his unique storytelling ability or his ability to be both young and old, insider and outsider, confident and fearful.

Tom Allen is a wonderfully laconic anecdotalist, and bears an uncanny stage presence to what might be described as the love child of Kenneth Williams and Stephen Fry. He has a genius for digression and an ear for hilariously mundane comments and platitudes. A rare talent, indeed.

“A great storyteller whose ability to provide riotous entertainment deserves to net him a wider audience.” The Guardian  

James Sherwoodwith JAMES SHERWOOD

"Imaginative musical jokes and beautifully crafted original comedy songs...The material he offers is fresh, contemporary and pin-sharp original." The Guardian

"If you ever wondered what would happen if Bill Bailey and Marcus Brigstocke had a child..." Chortle

"Quite brilliant" The Scotsman

"If you're a music lover, James Sherwood is
the comedian for you" Three Weeks

"Truly inspired, laugh out loud...hilarious" The List

"Savage satire" Sunday Times
