I once travelled over 4000 miles each way to meet people I'd only communicated with through the Internet, who were quite possibly axe-wielding murderers masquerading as someone I might like to sit down and have a chat with face to face. Lots of people I know have had the same experience involving different people and places. Dave Gorman takes this to extremes, racking up the air miles worldwide in the space of a few weeks, spending money he's only got as long as his publishers don't find out he isn't writing the novel they paid him for - in a desperate attempt to win a bet. It all started with the seemingly innocuous query 'Did you know you're a Googlewhack?' To tell anything about Dave's travels and experiences here would be to give away stuff that's better saved for viewing. You might already know the story if you've read the Googlewhack Adventure book, but don't let that put you off as here Dave relates the tale differently, with material that isn't in the book. He bounds through the show with stamina that puts the Energizer Bunny to shame, and more thrills and surprises than trying to get round London Underground on an 'engineering work' day. Is he funny? After hearing me howling my neighbours asked what my secret was. Buy this DVD, but before you watch it take the phone off the hook to make sure you won't be disturbed. It's worth wrecking your social life for a couple of hours. The extras are darn fine too.
