If someone called you a "Googlewhack" what would you do? You probably wouldn't embark on a 91,000 mile journey around the world. But then, you're not Dave Gorman are you? Released in 2004, Dave Gorman's Googlewhack Adventure is the first DVD release of the award-winning comedian's hit live show, which he has performed to sell-out audiences across the globe. Join the master storyteller as he inspires cheers, gasps and non-stop laughter with tales of his hilarious global exploits.
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.
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!
