Dave gormans Googlewhack Adventure £3.99

Jul 2006

Dave Gorman has consistently proved he is an ingenious and inventive comedian who really doesn't do comedy. He takes part in adventures, which often lead him across the globe in a quest to complete a self-imposed challenge, and this is no different. This time his quest is to find and meet "Googlewhacks" (people whose websites are the only ones that appear in a Google search when two random words are searched for). This challenge is at the expense of a novel he was supposed to write and a move into adulthood he was supposed to make. All recounted through this stage show. It is a hysterical and sometimes painful account of a man who often goes too far for the most trivial.

This was on paramount comedy on the 25th, I had to turn over, I hated it. But then we're all different with different tastes. I won't vote on this as it is probably a good deal for insomniacs. :thumbsup:

Thanks, ordered this. Dave is a complete genius

true altho it would be funny if it was a short story that happened to your mate and they said about it in the pub but it was too long winded.

Gorman reminds me of jasper carrot for some reason.

what actually annoys me is that they recorded the actual adventure not a stage show but the BBC never released the rights to sell that on dvd. lame!

are you sure?
it's a best selling (ish) book, but I’m not sure footage of his quest would be better than a stage show.

In fact, if bbc had footage it would completely negate the whole show from chapter/scene 1..... he only got on the quest by accident.

Completely recommend this dvd, and subsequently (the order i experienced them) book

Fantastic! Rep added.

Now if only I could find "Are you David Gorman?" for less than the £15 any of the few places I find it are asking

Is it cold in here or is it just me??....

I saw this live a couple of years ago.

He is genuinely very funny.

If you a web user & understand what google is (as your here you probably will)- chances are you'll enjoy this.

well worth watching for a fiver.

I think the poster talking about the adventure being filmed is in error - perhaps thinking of a different series (perhaps his Horoscope one, which I've never seen on DVD).

The whole point of the Googlewhack adventure, was that it was something that happened while Dave was supposed to be writing a book, not filming.

Personally, I think it's excellent, but it is too long winded for 1 sitting. Comes from it being a stageshow though, where the audience would expect more value for money. Worth watching the extras too though (in a seperate sitting), where you can see Dave answering questions from the audience.

**** SLIGHT SPOILER ****

There is a twist in the end of the tale Dave tells, which while a nice comic moment, feels completely like it isn't true. Which given Daves routines are built on his real-life experiences, is quite disappointing.

This is a great dvd in my opinion and is also a great book. Although i did buy it a while ago from musiczone where it was £2.99. well worth the money but it isnt as good as Are You Dave Gorman?

This is a brilliant DVD, can't believe people are trying to put others off, this is a cracking watch for £3.99 :thumbsup:

Went to see it on stage and I have to say it was several hundred times better than watching it on DVD Always is though isn't it.

Just the link from his official site and ebay! Had looked for it in the past though, and it was never any cheaper.

This is on Paramount Comedy all the time- it was on last night!

Can't stand the man myself, but I LOVE his ex-partner-in-crime Danny Wallace's books Join Me and Yes Man, and they'll be movies soon

if you dont like dave then that up to you i think dave not to bad look he has even got his own opinion

Ugh ! I remember him on the Frank Skinner show where he spent his whole interview publicising this googlewhack garbage. He is ok on 'Rob Brydon's Annually Retentive' show but I suspect that's probably only because he doesn't have a hand in writing his own part.
