Dave Gorman and Danny Wallace had a bet that Dave couldn't meet 54 of his namesakes (1 for every card in the deck including the jokers). It all got out of hand and they ended up travelling tens of thousands of miles around the world with Daves credit card and Danny's video camera to complete the task. Only after the event, with the help of the home video footage was the journey turned in to this TV series. Written by
I thought the show was called Are You Dave Gorman and I thought it was premiering now! That's what BBC America claims! Anyhow, this is a great series. I have seen the first three episodes (I take it there are more to come?) and Gorman is just hilarious. Such a simple idea...to find as many other people named Dave Gorman as you can. He shows footage of him and a friend going out and finding many Dave Gormans, even finding some variations of the name, and in between, he talks in front of a live audiences, showing pictures of various dave gormans, maps, etc on a projector behind him. He is trying to keep a nice balance...300-500 mpgd (miles per dave gorman- the number of miles between each one.) It's all quite enjoyable, and Gorman himself (the first one- the host..) is very charming and perfect for something like this. I hope to see more of this odd fellow.
