After watching the first episode of series 5 a bit early, we got the chance to chat with Mr Gorman over the phone. The call was delayed slightly, because Gorman was stuck at a garage trying to sort out his Mot. Once we were connected, that seemed like a good place to start our rather long chat...

Wesley Mead Apr 25, 2017

As series 4 of Taskmaster arrives on Dave, we salute one of the most enjoyable shows on TV...

In a media environment where every outlet is battling for attention more intensely than ever before, TV channel Dave has carved out quite a handy niche for itself. Many years since its erstwhile days as UKTVG2 - the ghettoised cousin of dusty sitcom purveyors UK Gold - a prominent Freeview Epg position and a remarkably successful rebranding has allowed the channel to build its own fanbase and identity.

Dave Gorman joined by projector for 'Powerpoint Presentation' tour
Dave Gorman has announced details of his new UK tour. The stand-up comedian, who recently made a hugely successful return to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe after an eight-year absence, will tour major venues across the UK with a special guest - his projector screen. Dave Gorman's Powerpoint Presentation has been described by one reviewer as "effectively a double-act with his technology", during which the Googlewhack Adventure star wants to show the audience his "Powerpoint presentation". Gorman's sell-out shows at the Fringe came during a busy 2011, which saw him release his fourth book, Dave Gorman Vs the Rest of the World, host his monthly comedy night in London and headline Dave's One Night Stand for digital channel Dave.

Dave Gorman: 'My shows aren't contrived'
Dave Gorman has brushed aside suggestions that his TV programmes are contrived. The stand-up comedian told Metro that he often rejects strange ideas for shows sent to him by members of the public. Gorman said: "People assume I do things thinking they'll become a project but the events in Googlewhack Adventure weren't contrived. They actually happened and it only looks like a project because I gave it a title. "While I was doing it, it was pretty unpleasant and (more)
