Dave Gorman

One of the UK's biggest contemporary comedians and sharpest raconteurs

About

With a distinctive style of storytelling, Dave has emerged as one of the most unique, original and exciting comedy minds that the UK has produced. Not only is he one of the biggest contemporary comedians and sharpest raconteurs but he is also a hugely successful author.

His tales of travelling the world in his one man shows, Are You Dave Gorman? (which later became the television series The Dave Gorman Collection) and Dave Gorman's Googlewhack Adventure have dazzled live audiences and broken box office records across the globe, establishing Dave as one of the hottest live international performers. His achievements include a three month run off Broadway in New York, plus sell-out seasons at The Edinburgh Fringe, The Sydney Opera House, The Melbourne Comedy Festival and at the US Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, where he won the HBO US Comedy Arts Festival One Man Show Award in both 2001 and 2004.

Dave appeared as a team captain on the second series of Rob Brydon's Annually Retentive (BBC Three) and has appeared on The Daily Show, filming six segments with Jon Stewart (More 4). His radio show Genius for BBC Radio 4 has since been made into two successful television series for BBC Two. His 90 minute documentary, Dave Gorman in America Unchained broadcast on More 4 in 2008 delivering more than six times the channel's average viewing figures for the slot. The film also won the Audience Award for Best Documentary Feature at the Austin film festival.

Dave has also had a phenomenal track record with his books Are You Dave Gorman? and Dave Gorman's Googlewhack Adventure, that climbed to number one in the Sunday Times non-fiction Bestsellers List in 2004. His third book 'America Unchained' was released in 2008.

He has won two BAFTA Awards as a writer on the Mrs Merton Show (BBC One). In addition he has made appearances on The Late Show With David Letterman (CBS), The Frank Skinner Show (ITV1), Absolutely Fabulous (BBC One), Never Mind The Buzzcocks (BBC Two), They Think It's All Over (BBC One) and acted in Steve Coogan's feature film 24 Hour Party People.

Dave spent autumn 2009 touring the country with his new show Sit Down, Pedal, Pedal, Stop, and Stand Up. Due to popular demand this tour was extended into 2010 and the DVD was released the same year.

Dave can be heard hosting his own radio show ever Sunday morning on Absolute Radio.
