About 30+ years ago I was at my grandmother's house in north-central Ohio - she was the first person I knew to ever have cable. She had about 12 channels, one of which was Ch 9 from Windsor Canada. They showed a program called Dave Allen at Large, an Irish (IIRC) comedian that had what I thought was more risque humor than Benny Hill and a fettish for Catholic jokes. He would sit on a tall stool/chair with a glass of scotch while doing his monologues and skit intros. Benny Hill even made fun of him once - Allen was missing his right pointer finger to the first knuckle, and Benny sat in this tall stool "presenting" his right hand with his finger bent back. Totally cracked me up. Just wonder whatever happened to him or his show. Haven't seen it now in probably 20+ years.
