My sister Barbara recently reminded me of one of the best comics of his day. Dave Allen.
Sadly this great showman passed away in 2005. The Dave Allen Show was one of those programs you would rush home for. Able to joke about religion in a disarming and relaxed manner.
Instead of running MASH for the 900th time on network telly, perhaps it’s time to bring back some of the older material that doesn’t age? It wouldn’t work for the sleazy Benny Hill material, but I think it would for Dave Allen.
