A personal selection of the finest gags from the grand master of innovative comedy.
Dave Allen was an alternative comedian before the phrase existed, an innovator who set the agenda for comedy - and comedians - for more than 30 years. Here he is with his personal choice of sketches, gags and monologues that wickedly target the foibles of our age.
Give him a stool, a cigarette and a glass of something and he's in his element, reflecting laconically on such diverse subjects as sex, the Irish, God, traffic, smoking, the Bible, life and death.
It's a vintage display from a unique raconteur, a man who observes our guilt, weakness and doubts and makes us laugh at them, and at ourselves.
