Stafford born comedian Dave Gorman is set to embark on brand new tour, Dave Gorman Gets Straight To The Point*... (*The PowerPoint) in autumn 2014, playing some of the biggest theatres in the country. This will be Dave’s first new live show in three years and follows on from Powerpoint Presentation, which went on a three-time-extended nationwide tour of the UK including multiple London dates at the Hammersmith Apollo and the Queen Elizabeth Hall at the Southbank Centre.
Yes. That’s right. It’s a PowerPoint presentation. We know what you’re thinking. But don’t worry… we think you’re in pretty safe (and funny) hands. You won’t need to take notes and you almost certainly won’t be tested on it later.
Dave Gorman said: “As much as I like the modern world, they still haven't invented something that replicates the fun of a theatre and a live audience… so let's do this thing.”
Along with the international tour of Powerpoint Presentation, DAVE’s live career has seen him sell out multiple tours of the UK, have two six-week runs off Broadway in New York extended to three months, complete a successful four-month tour of the USA and become responsible for the fastest selling show in the history of the Studio Theatre at The Sydney Opera House. Live performances have also earned him the title of Best One Person Show at the HBO US Comedy Arts Festival (twice), as well as nominations for the Perrier Award, the South Bank Award (alongside Eddie Izzard and Little Britain) and two nominations for the prestigious American Drama Desk Award, where he was up against - among others - the legend,Billy Crystal.
Dave is currently on (channel) Dave with the critically acclaimed Modern Life Is Goodish.
Fans are urged to book early as Stafford man Dave regularly sells out when he comes back to perform in his home town!
