Dave Allen is dead. He was an anti-establishment, anti-authoritarian, non-PC alternative comedian before Monty Python, the Goodies and The Young Ones were around. With a fine eye for observation and a wry timing for telling truths, he once said:
"New Zealanders are the most balanced people in the world; they have a chip on both shoulders."
(Times have changed. My generation has a scoop of chips, while the teenagers of today have them super-sized)
