John Keith Patrick Allen (March 17, 1927 - July 28, 2006) was a British actor and voice actor.
Allen was the voiceover for numerous trails and idents on British digital channel E4. His voiceover pieces were regularly irreverent and very funny, and matched the young, fun style of the channel. His vocal contributions to the channel have become very popular among young people in the UK, probably one of the coolest pensioners in the UK!
