Trivia

On 18th December 2017 Dave Gorman announced in a lengthy post on his blog that he had ended the show after five series as making the show was so labour-intensive it was making him ill. He revealed that he had fainted on-stage during the filming of the sixth episode of the first series as they had only allowed two weeks between each block of filming two episodes. Despite extending the period between filming blocks to nine weeks for series five Dave was still working 40-50 hours for three weeks and 100+ hours a week for three weeks on each episode - with the creation of 300-500 PowerPoint slides per episode being particularly labour-intensive.

I can't believe I almost never gave this show a chance.
15 October 2013 | by zubbusSee all my reviews

We all would like to try everything as thoroughly as possible before forming an opinion, or at least my generation of education taught me so. But what my generation of education didn't see is none of us, not one, can ever, ever have the time for all of that.

But once in a while I have some energy and inclination left after watching repeats of QI I have watched too many times before (I know confessing to watching too many repeats of QI can be discrediting for my review, but heck, where else would you find THIS program).

I know I actually spent most of my review talking about why I watched it rather than about the show it itself but here's why: 1) I suspect you're reading this because you're roughly in the same place of wondering whether you want to give it a watch 2) It's really quite good so I don't want to spoil it for you 3) Really how much more explanation and introduction do you need for another stand-up comedy?

Honestly, it's got a tad long built-up compared to Live at Apollo, lots of information, (and that's why it's got a lot of visual aids), etc. But those ones are often the best bits of each comedians over a long time compressed into one act. And the stuff this one builds up to is really good.

Oh and it was episode 5 I watched and he spent most of it taking the mickey out of reviews on the internet, so I doubt Dave will leave my good deed unpunished.
