Live Dates.

In March 2016, I completed a 92 date, sold out tour with the show Dave Gorman Gets Straight To The Point* (*The Powerpoint) - Now that's over the time has come to start building new projects. So I'm launching a new season of my Screen Guild shows. This will be the fifth run of these shows I've done - they started in 2011 - and they've been the building blocks for everything I've done since. If you're unfamiliar, these are mixed-bill shows that I curate. I book four great acts and I host the show. The audience is guaranteed a great night out because the guests are always great... and I get to experiment with any new ideas I have in between. I normally try out between 30 and 40 minutes of new stuff in a night. It's where all the material that eventually went into my last two tours was first tried out... and most of the material that goes in to Modern Life Is Goodish is given its first airing there also. The first two seasons of Screen Guild shows wereheld at Hoxton Hall, but seasons 3 and 4 had to move elsewhere as the venue needed to undertake a major refurb. I'm delighted to say that the venue is back up and running and so season 5 will see us return to Hoxton Hall. So far there are 4 shows booked...

A lot of the material that I try out at those shows is likely to end up in Modern Life Is Goodish... after all, I have two more series to make. As the recordings draw near, I always do dry runs of the shows in some nice small venues - it allows me to edit the shows to time and shuffle things around so that they feel right. It isn't exactly the kind of show that can be made by recording 90 minutes on the night and then editing it down to an hour. The performance we record has to be as close to what you see in the final broadcast as it can be... otherwise, I can't bring the various threads together. I do them in batches, so that I can rejig the material from night to night by feel... believe me, it's a far more effective way of working than having an endless series of meetings. A real audience reacting to a show tells you a lot more than a meeting with some chin-stroking telly folk. On each night, I'll be workshopping two episodes...
