4.0 out of 5 stars First the bad news..., 9 July 2005
This review is from: The Best of Dave Allen [DVD] (2005) (DVD)
...it's overpriced for what you get. It's a reissue of an earlier VHS tape, with a running time of 93 minutes and no extras.
Now the good news...it's utterly hilarious. It's a mixture of his earlier (before his hair went completely grey) monologues and sketches. The humour is brilliant and timeless, and Mr Allen's delivery of his monologues is unique, quirky and shows exactly why he is sadly missed by devotees. The sketches are wonderfully surreal, with some familiar faces. There's a poignant introduction, with a much older Mr Allen looking back at clips of his earlier shows.
Fans will want this. Anyone who has not seen Mr Allen in his prime should buy it, if only to see how stand-up (or, in this case, sit-down) comedy ought to be performed.
Goodnight, Dave, and may your god go with you.

Dave Allen will never be forgotten. A comic genius, please spread the word about him so they release more material. Who is holding back on all that funny material anyways. Please release more material, the world needs a good laugh !!!!! I just orderd the C.D. and can't wait untill it arrives, but I know I won't be satisfied with just the one C.D.
