"If you're sitting at a computer wondering what a Googlewhack is and you find out what one is and you don't try to find one you're not bloody human, surely!"
5 May 2010 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

Anyone reviewing this and trying to convince others that it is one of the best, funniest and most entertaining live comedy shows ever is one hundred percent correct.

Dave Gorman is a nice guy and a great story teller and the story of how he was sucked in to a challenge involving Googlewhacks (the term refers to using two proper words in Google's search engine and getting precisely ONE hit) is absolutely brilliant and as Gorman relates it to the audience, both live and whoever is lucky enough to get this on DVD, there is a very real emotional range here. We get the laughs, be they light or bitter, but we also get some actual tension as Dave leaves it till the very end to tell us whether or not he completed his challenge. We also get genuine warmth from a tale involving some wonderful human connections only kicked off by an internet wordgame of chance.

There's only really so much that can be said about a comedy show but, believe me, you will be doing yourself a favour if you try to see this one. It puts a smile on my face every single time.

See this if you like: "The Dave Gorman Collection", "Important Astrology Experiment", America Unchained.
