  1. Very sad…. I rember see Daivid Allen art The Fawcett- the same nigh as Stompin’ Dave Allen was playing at Little Johnny russell’s, and you, Dr Dave Allen, were playing at The R.M.A.!
    So…that night I saw THREE Dave Allens on the same evening. Good job that the Irish comedian who also shares your name was not at the Guildhall or The Kings that night. (He couldn’t be… he’d already passed away….)

    • Ah but there has never been an Irish Comedian sharing my name. There was a bloke called David Tynan O’Mahony who on stage called himself Dave Allen but he wasn’t real. The real David Allen was of course an off-spin bowler for Gloucestershire and England in the 1950s and 1960s.
