Dave Allen: God's own comedian

If you haven’t seen it, I thoroughly recommend watching Dave Allen: God’s own comedian on BBC iPlayer.

Dave Allen was a very funny man. Some of his gags were very simple – almost childish. But he had a deep anti-establishment, awkward squad streak and a great passion for pointing out stupidity in the world.

The programme shows some of his early career as a chat show host in Australia and the UK, as well as some very touching glimpses of his private world which suggest a very fulfilled, happy, family life.
