Dave Allen at Peace (BBC-2 2018, Aidan Gillen, Conleth Hill)

Published

on

Dave Allen at Peace is a biography of famed Irish comedian Dave Allen that covers his forty year career at the top. The drama focuses on not only his career, which included stints as a Butlins redcoat and major success in Australia, but also covers the impact that the death of his father and brother had on him.

The film will be structured in affectionate homage to Dave’s original television format. From his famous bar stool, the comic will reflect on his formative years and showbiz career. Flashbacks, some visualised as comedy sketches, will intercut his bar stool repartee bringing significant moments to life.
