Is acerbic comic Tom Allen’s York Barbican show a whole year away? Completely, true

Completely, Tom Allen

YOU will have to wait 12 months for comedian, raconteur, arch television jester and radio presenter Tom Allen’s new show, Completely, to arrive at York Barbican.

Tickets will go on sale rather sooner, however, for his May 28 2023 show. Booking will open at 10am on Monday (30/5/2022) at

At 38, Bromley-born Allen has finally moved out of his parents’ house: great news for him, better news for department stores and even better news for his latest stand-up tour, wherein he is eager to share his life updates, gain audience opinions on his vegetable patch and delve into the protocol of inviting friends with children for dinner.

Allen brings his signature acerbic wit and riotous storytelling, to hosting The Apprentice: You’re Fired, co-hosting Cooking With The Stars and the Like Minded Friends podcast and being a regular  on Bake Off: An Extra Slice and There’s Something About Movies.

His last tour sold more than 50,000 tickets, prompting the advice to book early, even when the York show is 366 days away.
