116: Tom Allen | Part 1

Homo Sapiens

Who else could take you from talking about straight people being obsessed with omelettes to a fascinating discussion on why it’s a privilege to fail? It could only be comedian Tom Allen. This chat was a really lovely surprise to me. I knew Tom was incredibly funny and he sure does deliver, but it is his incredible honesty about his version of the LGBTQ+ experience that you will all love, particularly so much interesting stuff about unspoken complexities of being single / not single that I think we can all relate to deeply. Cannot wait for you to hear it!

2: With...Tom Allen

As you'd expect, Tom manages to bring a certain sophistication to proceedings, but don't worry, Sally-Anne and Lou manage to drag things back down again.
