Original Air Date: ???
Dave Walks In To The Empty Studio Where The Show Was Shot
Talks About The Old Set And His Memorys Over The 20 Years Of The Show
Dave Allen (born David Tynan O'Mahoney in Tallaght, Ireland on (6 July 1936) was one of the comedy mainstays of BBC schedules throughout the 1970s and '80s. Sitting cross-legged on a high stool, a drink in one hand and a cigarette in the other, Allen held forth on the absurdities of the human condition and the foibles of life for over twenty years. Although he received his big break and ended his television career with ITV, it is the BBC shows, with their combination of stand-up (while seated) and sketches, that remain etched in the collective memory.
