Modern Life Is Goodish
Dave Gorman: Modern Life Is Goodish, is a new six part series I made in 2013 for Dave. (That's the channel, Dave, not me-Dave. I don't talk about myself in the third person. Dave Gorman doesn't do that and he never will.)
It's a stand up show presented by me and my laptop. It's informed by my last tour - Powerpoint Presentation - and is broadly about the misinformation and nonsense we have to wade through daily in this technologically advanced, wonderful - yet flawed - world of ours.
The shows were filmed at The Tabernacle in Notting Hill rather than in the anodyne surroundings of a TV studio. I think that helped to make them feel and look a little different. I think it's the first time I've done a series that actually captures the spirit of what I do live - while also, I hope, feeling like it's made for the telly and not just a recording of a gig. The series launched on September 17th at 10pm.
The reviews and viewing figures have been incredible and it seems to have built up a wonderfully loyal audience. It did a rare thing for a TV series and actually built a bigger audience as it went on. It is, I think, the most watched series I've ever done.
The whole series is currently available to watch on demand too. And it looks set for a repeat run starting December 15th 2013 too.
Tickets for shows like this are free. And my mailing list are always the first to know when they're happening.
