Famous comedian Tom Allen has revealed that he attended a Chislehurst school with fellow comedy star Rob Beckett.

According to Chislehurst Society Facebook page, Tom Allen chatted about his home patch in Bromley when his nationwide tour arrived in the borough this month.

The now 40-year-old attended Coopers School in Hawkwood Lane during the 90s alongside Rob Beckett.

Tom revealed that his first of four sell-out performances in the Churchill Theatre stage were his first time on the local stage.

According to Chislehurst Society, he reminisced about his days in Bromley and jokingly said that he now clashes with the litter-throwing Coopers kids heading past his front garden.

He even shared his favourite four pubs to head to which are The Bull’s Head, Tiger’s Head, Crown Inn and The Cockpit.

He also revealed why he dreaded assembly when he started at nearby Scotts Park primary school and how he earned his first wages behind the bar at Sundridge Park golf club.

Back in 2005, Tom won the newcomer comedy award, So You Think You’re Funny, and later that same year he won the BBC New Comedy Award.

He then went on to perform sell-out shows at Edinburgh Festival and embarked on his first solo tour in 2017.

The Bromley comedian has also appeared on numerous television shows such as eight out of ten cats, countdown, Richard Osman’s House of Games, The Grear Christmas Bake off to name a few.

Rob followed a similar path, winning third place in So You Think You’re Funny and made his Edinburgh Fringe debut in 2012 with a solo show called Rob Beckett’s Summer Holiday.

He has also appeared on many televisions shows such as Fresh Meat, I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here, eight out of ten cats and Taskmaster.
