Too Much: the hilarious, heartfelt memoir
About this deal
But when his beloved dad died suddenly, Tom’s life was rocked by a fresh set of challenges, and he started to find comfort in his friends, his past and his newly dug vegetable patch. I'd obviously seen Tom Allen many times on TV (difficult to avoid him) but doing stand up and presenting, I'd also seem him going a live stand up which was fun.
However, don't be put off by thinking that Too Much is a book to be avoided because of its subject matter.She must have thought I was not worthy of standing up on stage when her son wasn’t on stage, who was 10 times better than me.
I recognised the parallels and found myself laughing at Tom's descriptions, the weird and the wonderful, the happy and sad, a recollection of moments; some far from perfect but always bound by love.He started standup aged 22, winning So You Think You’re Funny and the BBC New Comedy award in the same year.
