Dave Gorman Review - Royal and Derngate Northampton
I was always a big fan of his TV series 'Modern Life is Goodish'. A show that ran for five series between 2013 and 2017.The premise being Dave Gorman presenting hilarious Powerpoint presentations to persuade that life is neither good nor bad , but goodish.Each episode features a recurring section called the "Found Poem", in which he reads out a selection of bizarre comments left on news websites, all covering a particular story.
The second half is an hour and a half of Gorman telling us about his wife;s extreme spending on hair products. His stint as a celebrity panelist on 'The Chase' and 'Cash in the Attic'.
All delivered with over the top and forensic like detail and delivered with the timing of a batsman with a century to his name.
I loved the story of his move from London to Bournemouth and how he used statistics to prove it wasn't a retirement home for the elderly.
Complete with the trademark check shirt the slickness is just the same as his television work. The exception being a lot more 'effing and jeffing' than I had expected.
The two subjects tonight are 'Meghan Markle' marrying into the Royal family. The other being Australia's inclusion into the European Song Contest.
Both delivered in sombre, subtle and hilarious tones.
It's been a great night indeed , and I almost forgot to mention the riotously hilarious 'Giraffe Joke' he gave us at the end.
Come back soon Dave !
