Genius IS pure genius.
28 March 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Dave Gorman hits our screens again with another fantastic show. We've all had mad ideas in the past, well here they are all rolled into these 30 minute shows.

Dave Gorman has a special guest each week to add to the entertainment and his choice of guests in the first two episodes, Catherine Tate and Frank Skinner were the perfect match for this show.

One particular idea really had me laughing... make building bricks four times bigger so that you can build a house four times quicker!!! Pure genius!! Anyway, Dave Gorman is a legend and this is just yet another of his great list of comedy brilliance. Thanks Dave.
