Comedian Dave Allen dies aged 68
Dave Allen: Your tributes

I remember watching Dave Allen (mostly on Dave Allen at Large) in the back room with my father when I was not quite old enough to be up late watching TV. Or Dave Allen, for that matter. My current status as an eclectic agnostic can be attributed (at least in part) to these late nights.

So it’s true. Television does rot the brain, and you should blame the parents.

PS – I’m pleased to discover that my favourite Dave Allen moment struck a chord with another viewer who has ensured that it is preserved in Usenet.
