“You certainly get a lot of Dave Gorman for your money with his latest show… initially feels like two separate shows each side of the interval, yet they also slot together beautifully to make one epic evening… This is feelgood stand-up that wears its intelligence lightly. Topics are knitted together in a way that is so laugh-inducing it will make your face hurt… pay attention and you will be educated as well as spectacularly entertained.”
Bruce Dessau, The Evening Standard ★★★★
“constructs wonderfully elaborate stories that are never hack and sometimes reach absurdist heights… a very entertaining show, in which the visuals illustrating a gag often double the fun.”
Veronica Lee, The Arts Desk ★★★★
It was announced today (30th June 2023) that Dave Gorman’s critically acclaimed brand-new live tour, Powerpoint to The People, has been extended for a second time with a further 24 dates announced throughout Autumn, due to demand for tickets.
Dave Gorman: Powerpoint To The People will see the man behind Dave TV’s hit show Modern Life Is Goodish as well as Are You Dave Gorman? and Googlewhack Adventure back on the road again this autumn with his brand-new live show.
The “high priest of the comedy Powerpoint talk” (The Times) is touring again – as much as anything to demonstrate that a powerpoint presentation doesn’t have to involve a man in a grey suit standing behind a lectern and saying, “next slide please”. We’ve all had enough of that, so let’s put it all behind us and never speak of it again – there are far more important things to analyse. Well… they’re more important in Dave’s head anyway.
This new show sees Dave continue to combine his unique and critically acclaimed style of stand-up and visual story-telling. His last tour was the critically acclaimed With Great Powerpoint Comes Great Responsibilitypoint which, three-times extended, saw Dave sell out four shows at London’s iconic Royal Festival Hall and the biggest theatres around the UK.
Dave’s live career has seen him sell out multiple tours of the UK, perform three runs off Broadway in New York, tour 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 Edinburgh Comedy Award (Perrier Award), the South Bank Award and two nominations for the prestigious American Drama Desk Award.
Between March and June new dates will be added in: Darlington, Doncaster, Newcastle, Bournemouth, Weston Super Mare, Torquay, Cheltenham, Guildford, Crewe, Reading, Buxton, Harrogate, Wolverhampton, Dorking, Ipswich, Cambridge, Stockton, Dundee, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Chatham, St Albans, Bedford, Loughborough, Dudley, Dartford, Hayes, Porthcawl, Swansea, Canterbury, Cardiff, Stevenage, Oxford, Tunbridge Wells, Basingstoke and Dublin.
