5.0 out of 5 stars Dave's back and he's better than ever 29 Nov 2004
By Dooog
Format:DVD
The masterful Dave Gorman makes it to DVD for the first time and you won't be disappointed. The book is one hell of a funny read, but there's something genuinely beautiful about Dave's performance that makes this a must have item for any comedy fan. He's been loathe to film his previous shows for genuine concerns he had as to whether what works on stage would translate to the small screen and whether those fears are rightly or wrongly held, he's spot on to have released this.
I confess I'd read the book before this and loved his previous adventure meeting 54 namesakes after a drunken bet (hint for the BBC: time to release that one now please), but the tale of the Googlewhack adventure eclipses his former antics.
This tale has highs and lows. Real lows. Really low lows. Really insane low lows but Dave manages to wring gag after gag and laugh after laugh out of even this dark period in his life. Whilst there's a whole heap of other incidents described in the book that haven't made it to the stage show, every minute of this two hour tale will have you roaring with laughter (unless you just don't have a sense of humour), and after watching it you'll want to do nothing beyond watching it again.
It's a simple tale of how co-incidence and work avoidance affect a man with a competitive streak that may need a little more controlling, struggling to mature from his reckless youth, but now egged on by 'friends' who maybe ought to have known better finds himself once more travelling the world over to win a stupid bet. Don't believe that one e-mail could spark thousands of miles of air flight, the frankly reckless sqandering of an entire book advance, a brush with mental illness and one of the most improbable adventures ever conceivable ? Then you've never encountered Dave Gorman. Superb.

5.0 out of 5 stars The King of Crazy Adventures is Back 9 Nov 2004
Format:DVD
Anyone who has read any of Dave Gormans books, seen any of his TV shows or seen any of his live performances will know how funny and unique his own brand of docu-comedy is. This ladies and gentlemen is no exception.
He has you gripped from the start with his excellent and some times intense storytelling, but you never forget what this is, a pant wetting comedy show.
The extras are also well selected, if a little sparse. You get an excellent photo gallery, which shows many more photos that are not shown in the book or the stage show. There's also a little bit of b3ta magic in the googlewhack music video. And just to make sure you didn't miss anything from the live show, Dave has also included his best out-takes and ad-libs.
Follow Dave through highs and lows with this fantastic adventure. And remember, it's all true!

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius! 31 Aug 2005
Format:DVD
Amazing! I don't think I have ever laughed so much before in my life! Fast-paced comedy with a storyline (which I wouldn't dare ruin) that will have you on the edge of your seat - then falling off it in fits of laughter! I can't recommend this show highly enough - it will have you in stitches! Mr Gorman.... BBC..... More please!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars you have to watch this DVD 3 Nov 2005
Format:DVD
Before I saw "Dave Gorman's Googlewhack Adventure" I'd never heard of him or a Googlewhack. "Googlewhacking" is a pretty pointless game that people play using the Google search engine. I watched this DVD three times in two days and ended up spending three days of my life "Googlewhacking". I didn't succeed in finding a googlewhack and that's where my story ends. Dave Gorman's story however goes much further than mine.....91,000 miles further in fact.
Dave Gorman is a brilliant story teller/comedian who tells us his amazing story about his googlewhack adventure, which will make you both laugh and cry.
Everyone should see this DVD. A must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Plenty of laughter and some tears 29 Dec 2004
Format:DVD
You can take for granted that Dave Gorman's comedy is funny. If you've seen the sort of thing he's done before, you'll know what you're in for when he takes you on his Googlewhack Adventure.
But Dave Gorman is also a very warm performer. You know he'll make you laugh, but you don't always expect to be moved as well. After all, this is a show about a nearly middle-aged guy becoming obsessed with a geeky internet game. You'll probably know the sort of geeky thing I'm talking about, otherwise you'd be buying this DVD from a shop like normal people.
This particular internet game for geeks (present company excepted) involves thousands of miles of travel and a plurality of people called Dave Gorman. Comedy value, yes, as you'll know if you've seen him before. But will it move you?
Dave Gorman is a brilliant story teller. He talks for the best part of two hours, and a very tiring two hours it looks too, with enough shouting to make John Cleese proud, and a couple of naughty words creeping in. And one very naughty word. And he speaks with real and vivid affection about the people he meets and who help him in his quest, whom the tiny probabilities that googlewhacking involves bring his way.
And he hands you his vulnerabilities on a plate. His story runs the gamut from elation to despair, and he really draws you in, till you forget that it's just an internet game for geeks - it's his obsession, and while you're watching him, it becomes yours too.
Plenty of laughter and some tears - if that's the sort of thing you like, this is for you.
I wish Dave all the best with this show.
