Yeah, I was thinking Dave Allen's routine had a similar structure to bits that Newhart, Sid Caesar, Jackie Mason and the like were doing back in the 50's and early 60's. I imagine that style originated in Vaudeville. I thought that bit was hilarious, DA had a show that used to appear on my local PBS affiliate back in the 80's, also very funny.
