Top act notorious for having a big nose normally dressed smart and at that time was my absolute favourite comic of all... I booked and he turned up to headline at my new year's gig like a scruffbag... he preceded to steam in hard to a couple who were talking calling them cunts probably on 2nd interaction... having lost the audience somewhat with a little overeactive agression he then chose the wrong moment on New Year to do stuff about Tampons and started to get some heckles... it was at his point that he posed the scenario curtailing mid joke without the punchline... How would it be if I let this gig bomb? I know I'm a top act, I don't need this... I got a diary full of prestigeous gigs to last me 6 months. it was a new year gig and the countdown was imminent and with various people getting up to show disgust and go for a fag it bombed as he brought out a harmonica and made squealing noises... people heckled positively saying "finish the joke' carry on" say some funny stuff" but time ran out as we had to tune in to Big Ben... It was all I could do to prevent the club owner from killing him as he'd called his brother in law cunts and bombed it big time at a crucial moment. Needless to say the opening night of a regular club was curtailed right then.

yes it's got to be Keith Allan as opposed to Tony.

I heard a legendary story about Keith Allan, that he once had a shit on stage during his set
