The big surprise is how it lingers
1 October 2007 | by (the big screen) – See all my reviews

Dave Gorman's adventure is both hugely surrealistic, and hugely real.

Based on the true tale of what happens when random events are carried to a logical end, Googlewhack is one of the most surprising one-man shows to be seen in quite a while.

As much theater as comedy it does more than just ask us to laugh or think - it causes us to wonder at the sheer magnitude and determination of the quest that Dave undertook.

Never losing his thread thanks to his trusty Mac and Keynote presentation - there is a definite mania to the whole thing.

After the first hour it began to be repetitive, then suddenly caught fire again and the last 30 minutes are superb.

Can honestly say that this is one of the best one man shows out there - and one to be enjoyed - Dave does not come across as a Las Vegas type comedian - nor Lenny Bruce - he is quintessentially unique - a downtrodden Don Quixote off questing the world - it is a wonderful and at times tiring watch - but really lingers after...
