Dave Allen at Large

Dave Allen was a top comedian who sat on a stool, sometimes smoking and sometimes drinking what he had us believe was whiskey. The jokes (many of which would now be considered extremely politically incorrect) were interspersed with sketches - and his show had a very high "laughs per minute rate".

Dave had an uncanny ability to see the humour in very ordinary situations. I particularly liked with way he finished each show with, "Goodnight, and may your God go with you."

The late, great, Dave Allen. I remember his "Alas poor Yorick, I knew him well... he was a miserable bas**rd." sketch.

Anyone else remember his last words on the show? "Goodnight, and may your god go with you".
