Telegraph | News | Dave Allen (1373 words)
Dave Allen, the comedian who died on Thursday night aged 68, was the master of urbane and laconic disquisitions on the more surreal details of daily life.
Allen would frequently refer to the Catholic nuns at his childhood convent in Ireland as "the Gestapo in drag", and recall how the Carmelite priests who educated him in his teens told him that Satan "manifested himself in the loins of boys".
According to Allen, his father lost a foot in a lift accident; it was so badly trapped that he had to cut it off with his pen-knife, and he then married the nurse who tended him.
