A true story of one man's journey of lunacy and hilarity
19 April 2005 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This is one of the funniest DVD's out there from one of the most interesting comedian's in Britain today.

What is so refreshing about Dave Gorman is that he doesn't actually make up jokes to make the audience laugh, come to think of it he doesn't really tell many jokes, he just tells the audience what happened on his adventure around the world meeting other 'googlewhacks', people who may be (unknowingly) part of a huge internet game. The story is so ludicrous it can't be made up, everything here is true and that's why is it that funny. To think it all started out by him getting a random Email and then getting very drunk (don't all the best stories start that way?) If you have ever seen any of his TV shows, or read any of his books you know exactly what to expect, if you haven't then rent this and allow him to talk about his travels for two hours, you won't regret it!
