Dave Gorman’s Power Point Presentation (Avalon Promotions)

By | Published on Saturday 20 August 2011

Everyone wants to be friends with Dave Gorman. With an infectious energy, he barely stops to breathe in this hilarious PowerPoint-assisted quest to decipher the everyday, from 48-hour deodorant to food that makes your wee smell funny. Gorman has a flair for finding humour in places you would never look, and even though there’s seemingly no real point to the PowerPoint beyond his self-confessed love for technology, the format provides a visual punch to his relentless stream of thought. Gorman reacts naturally to his audience, genuinely relishes their enthusiasm and delivers with such vitality and presence, that it’s as if he’s sharing light-bulb moments for the first time. If you don’t already, you may well leave thinking Gorman’s a genius.

Assembly George Square, 3 – 28 Aug, 7.40pm (8.40pm), £13.50 – £15.00, fpp64.
