If he wasn’t busy enough, 2020 saw the release of Tom’s critically acclaimed Sunday Times bestseller memoir, No Shame, and last year Tom’s subsequent memoir, Too Much, followed and was described by the Guardian as ‘heartfelt, vulnerable and touchingly sincere’. Both are available in hardback and audiobook.

Tom’s sold-out Absolutely tour of 2018 and 2019 was extended multiple times, selling over fifty-thousand tickets, including an unforgettable show at The London Palladium which was filmed and broadcast on Channel 4. Tom is back out on the road in 2023 with his brand-new stand-up show, Completely, touring nationwide.

What can I say?!! Tom was AWESOME on Friday and we loved him! Honestly, he was so lovely to work with, easy and got us spot on. People were crying with laughter and just made the whole day for us. Thanks also for all your help in what was a lovely smooth process from start to finish.
Tom was absolutely brilliant – our best host yet! And what a fantastic guy – he was so nice and down to earth. We’re all big fans, and it was so nice to meet him in person and see that he is as nice as we hoped! Our guests loved him too. It will be VERY hard to top him next year. November 2023
