Dave Allen on the Vagaries of the English Language + Telling the Time

Dave Allen

There is always room in this world for dead comedians, eh? I think sometimes dead comedians are funnier than live ones...so this one's for Dave Allen.

Dave Allen was born July 6, 1936. In 1959 he got a break by appearing on a talent show called New Faces, and he made a name for himself in the 1960's. In 1961 he toured England and France with the then unknown band The Beatles.

He was famous for sitting on a stool on stage drinking whisky and smoking. I remember, way back in 1979 trying to impress one of my first girlfriends by buying her a ticket to see Dave Allen at Portsmouth's Kings Theatre. Unfortunately the humour went strait over her little head (bless). But for me it was one of the funniest shows I had been to. Dave Allen was well known for his jokes about the catholic religion:

Unfortunately Dave Allen died on March 10th 2005, leaving us with over 30 years of the funniest fact based comedy. Goodnight. Thank you Dave Allen and "may your God go with you".

Here are a couple more of clips of Dave Allen telling it strait!
