Dave Allen dies aged 68

More here.

Irish comedian from yesteryear has died, aged 68.

I remember watching his show on the ABC when I was younger, late at night. He was so irreverent, he was even given an ultimatum to stop taking the piss out of the catholic church or be excommunicated. He chose to be excommunicated, so he won't go to heaven.

Coming as he did from Ireland, a country noted for (relatively) fanatical catholicism, you've got to respect that.

Doubtless he has a glass of fine whisky & a cigarette in hand where ever he is now.

Thanks to mijbril.
