Very Original
2 January 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Dore has excellent deadpan delivery and has created a wonderfully self-aware show. It's a kind of faux documentary that centres around a fictionalized (but how much?) version of Dore. Each show takes on a topic that Dore fixates on (quitting smoking, getting in shape, attracting a woman, accessibility for disabled people, infertility, getting over a fear of bats etc)

The overall format of this show is unlike anything I've ever seen. The interview portions might remind me a little of D'Ali G show, but in Dore's case, it's almost irrelevant if the interviewee knows it's for a comedy show (and certainly, it's clear that some really do know).

At first I wondered why I found this show so "familiar" in tone. Then after a few episodes I looked him up online and discovered that he's from Ottawa, Canada and then moved to Toronto, Canada (same with me). So I'm thinking that a foreigner might see this show in a much stranger light that I'm seeing! Cool.
