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."

    He was fantastic! Yes, definitely not PC, but a darn good show. I recall a sketch where it's set in Victorian London, he's dressed in evening dress, and there's the view of a ladies shoes, running, Dave is looking backwards and the running gets quicker, in the end we see it's him wearing the shoes. Has to be seen to be appreciated.

    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".
