Dave Gorman Is Getting a New TV Show in the UK


British comedian and author Dave Gorman is getting a new show, the UK TV channel Dave announced today. Gorman, best known for Are You Dave Gorman? and Googlewhack Adventure, will star in Modern Life is Goodish, loosely based on his live show Powerpoint Presentation. The network has commissioned six hour-long episodes of Modern Life, which will blend stand-up and real world footage to explore Gorman’s frustrations with consumerism, the media, and technology. Gorman is probably best known to US audiences for a brief stint as a Daily Show correspondent in 2006 during that weird period where they had two British guys. Gorman’s new series is set to air this fall - or “autumn,” as they call it in the UK.
