The image of Dave Allen is seared into our minds. He sits on a tall chair with a glass of J&B, smoking his Gauloises, a fingertip missing as he tells the most hilarious, rambling stories. But what of the man behind the image? Having worked with him as his tour manager, Carolyn Soutar was able to see how he behaved both on and off screen. Here she discusses the Irish Catholic upbringing that brought him so much anger, which he was able to turn to humour, how he toured with the Beatles in the sixties, and became a huge TV star in the following decades. This biography is the most revealing account of the famously private comedian, whose career began in the sixties but who remained influential to a whole new generation of comics in the 21st century.
