Dave Allen

For those of you who don't know Dave Allen, the Irish comedian died just before the weekend.

I wasn't lucky enough to see everything he did, he was already well established by the time I came into this world, but I do recall some of his stuff when he was on in the late 80's early 90's especially the teenager routines and how they acted, they always seemed to be so spot on. He made you think, he made you laughed, because he could see the absurdity in a real life situation, and that is where the joke came from, you just had to take it to the end and you almost knew yourself where it would go and what would be said, but he dressed it in a way that was so funny.

Because I don't have all the knowledge of everything he did, I refer you to links instead so that you can read what others think as well as the tributes and his comic quotes as well

Dave Allen: Comic Quotes

I think the quote a lot of people remember is this one -

"We spend our lives on the run: we get up by the clock, eat and sleep by the clock, get up again, go to work - and then we retire. And what do they give us? A clock."

The passing of another great comedian.
