Nottingham Glee Club is the place to be on November 17 for a visit by two rising comedians - Tom Allen and Suzi Ruffell.
Both fresh the Edinburgh Festival as well as supporting their comedy peers and idols, Tom Allen (Sarah Millican) and Suzi Ruffell (Josh Widdicombe, Alan Carr and Kevin Bridges) have taken their hotly anticipated shows on the road.
The sharply dressed, well-spoken, disparagingly camp son of working class Bromley, Tom Allen explains why he’s occasionally disgusted with modern life yet delighted with its eccentricities.
Tom expands his deliciously detailed yet trivial storytelling as he takes his audience into the depths of his experience of suburbia and his life at home with his parents.

As seen on 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, The John Bishop Christmas Show & The Comedy Store Presents, Tom recently wowed the O2 Arena crowd on Channel 4’s Comedy Gala and was a guest on Great British Bake Off’s Extra Slice with Jo Brand.

Come on, pour yourself a vodka, pop on your leopard print and explore what it is to be working class today, in this hysterical, hot new show.
Suzi is one of the most popular up and coming acts on the UK comedy scene, in constant demand in theatres and clubs across the country, last year she did a double-header tour with Romesh Ranganathan, she is Alan Carr’s official tour support and will be supporting Josh Widdicombe again this Autumn.
Amongst other things, Suzi has recently appeared on Live From The Comedy Store (Comedy Central); Virtually Famous (E4) and The Now Show (Radio 4). She has also written for The Last Leg, Mock The Week and 8 Out Of Ten Cats.
