For Those About To Quit I Salute You

I posted this in my first post on this forum but don't know how many people saw it or have seen it in the past.

It is a comedy sketch from a comedy genius, the late, great, Dave Allen, on giving up smoking.

He was himself a really heavy smoker and used to smoke during his TV shows when it was not considered to be an odd thing to do.

Give it a watch, it's truly hysterical and, more to the point, really is closer to the mark than many of us would care to admit! :D

Hi Captain,

Thank you for the post and the youtube skit of Dave Allen. It was very funny and we can all relate to it :D


yo Mutley that's a funny sketch.......legend :rolleyes:


Comedy genius. :cool:

He was really something special back in the day - what else did we have at the time? Wheeltappers and Shunters Club! The "Comedians" with their sexist, racist old rubbish week in week out.... Thanks for the memory!


Dave Allen was an absolute star; one of the best observational comedians ever to grace the stage.

Has anyone read the book about his life? It's supposed to very good -- a very sad story. I'll have to get hold of it sometime.
