Allan Havey (born 19 September 1954) is an American stand-up comic and actor. He started his career as a comedian in New York City in 1981. He made his national debut in 1986 on Late Night with David Letterman and made many appearances on the show throughout the 1980s and 1990s. His latest appearance on the show was on October 8, 2010.

In November 1989 he was chosen by HBO to host a show on The Comedy Channel (later known as Comedy Central). His show, Night After Night with Allan Havey, which initially ran for three hours nightly, presented Allan's unique stream of consciousness, celebrity interviews, news and film clips (with commentary), and unusual "on location" scenarios. It became a cult classic among fans. The show also featured an "Audience of One", a "Viewer Mail" segment, "Dave the Weatherman", and announcer Nick Bakay, who left the show to perform the same role on The Dennis Miller Show and who would return after that show's cancellation in 1992. Night After Night ran for three years and was cancelled in December 1992.

Since then, in addition to film roles in Internal Affairs, Checking Out, Rounders, Hancock, Comedian, and Melvin Goes to Dinner, Havey has appeared twice on HBO's One Night Stand, and has also appeared in episodes of Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Punk'd, and The Sarah Silverman Program.
