I figured Off Topic might be the best place for this.

Anyone been to see him on his current tour? I was at it Saturday past in the Belfast show and it was probably the best stand up I've ever seen. Went on for about 2 and a half hours as well.

I was a bit worried at the start when he said it was stand up, and wasn't a story about crazy stuff he'd done (Are you Dave Gorman?, Googlewhack etc.) but I needn't have worried. The whole routine was fabulous. From rants about how a comics brain works when thinking about material, to the evolution of the Honey Monster, it was all gold.

Anyone?

Yeah, being a good citizen of Bellusfastius I was there too!  An absolutely brilliant night from Dave Gorman, and I've never looked at breakfast cereal in the same light since.   It started a bit slow, but it didn't take long before the man was on fire.  By the end of it, I was as happy as a horse in trousers

I had completely forgotten about Bellusfasticus.

I did like the way he ripped into the guy who came in late (and am now hoping that wasn't you). He must have been bike furious.

Shame the Waterfront wasn't full though, but I guess not that many people over here really know of ol' Dave. Not that it was very well advertised anyway. I only found out about it because I was walking to central station and saw a poster in the window of the waterfront.

I saw him a couple of weeks ago.  Wasn't sure whether to get tickets or not... in fact it's safe to say I was buy curious.  I agree with Sharky in that it took him a bit to get motoring, but he was excellent.  I met him afterwards while he was signing stuff (including my Are You Dave Gorman? DVD), and he was a very nice man.  Plus I got a photo with him.  Top night in all.

I would have waited amongst the throngs of people to get something signed but a mate of mine had to get home, and he was driving so I had to leave. Shame.

But an excellent night all round.

The bit about the Aviva ad was hysterical.

Saw him in Glasgow a month or two back, I was already a fan and had read his books, but I had'nt seen him live on stage before, it was a great night and me and my mate managed to meet him afterwards and get some stuff signed, which was great.

Saw him in London in Febuary. It really was a very good show, and he certainly gave everyone their money's worth! Was a bit apprehensive as I only knew him from his books and Genius, and wasn't sure how good a stand up he was, but it was very funny!

I saw him a few years ago in Southampton with his googlewhack tour which was chuffing hilarious, i even touched his tatt.

Last month he was in Portsmouth with this current tour and i saw him again, brilliant.

I only saw one episode of Genious on tv, however, recently (i think it was on Dave) they played the entire series, so i sky+ed it and i've been slowly working through to savour the taste. The one with Johnny Vegas is hilarious.

Saw him in Plymouth about a month ago, I was expecting something along the lines of Googlewhack/Are You Dave Gorman?, so I was kind of worried at first, but it turned out to be an excellent show. The unveiling of Powerpoint got the biggest cheer of the night! He hung around afterwards to chat and sign stuff, but I had to go.
I tweeted him to ask if there would be a DVD of the current tour; he said he wasn't sure; they hadn't done a recording yet, and he wasn't sure when they could fit it in.

Anyone been on the Powerpoint Presentation tour? I'm going in Belfast tonight. Looking forward to it.

I saw his Powerpoint Presentation tour at Hammersmith Apollo a while back and thought it was really good. We had a pianist as the kind of support act and he was hilarious. Enjoy

Hmm, i was unaware of this tour, i've looked and the nearest venue is on the isle of wight, it's 20 which is fine, but then it's going to cost the same again to get the ferry over there.... hhmmmm

Edit: You only live once, i've booked a ticket for me and my ladyfriend, anyone know the running time of the show? gotta book the ferry home!

Support came on about quarter past 8 for 20 minutes, intermission, then Dave Gorman came on about 9 straight through to half 10.

Bloomin' brilliant show too.
