NEW YORK, NY (Dec. 8, 2014) – Dave Gorman will debut his new show Dave Gorman’s Powerpoint Presentation in the U.S. January 20-31, 2015 at NYC’s SubCulture. Always one of comedy’s most innovative thinkers, Gorman has formed a double act with a projector screen for this exclusive limited run. Gorman, the man behind Are You Dave Gorman?, Googlewhack Adventure, America Unchained and Modern Life Is Goodish, last performed in NYC to rave reviews in 2005.
With a distinctive style of storytelling, Dave is 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. Dave’s 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 a sell-out season 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 Gorman’s Powerpoint Presentation will include 12 performances, beginning January 20th. Shows will be performed Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 7:30pm, with two shows on both Fridays and Saturdays at 7pm and 9pm. Tickets for all shows go on sale Friday, December 12 at noon on www.subculturenewyork.com (45 Bleecker St, NY NY, 212.533.5470). For more information, please visit www.davegorman.com
Praise for the Dave Gorman
“As the cliché puts it: what’s in a name? If the name happens to be Dave Gorman, the answer is: one very funny show. Mr. Gorman is the sort of comedian who can – & does – mine laughter from reading a phone book.”
- The New York Times
“Our favourite show of 2001. He heightens an elegantly simple concept to the peak of absurdity, as a drunken boast leads to obsession, betrayal, exhilarating victories, devastating setbacks and maxed-out credit cards…. The smart and genial star keeps his audiences in stitches (and at rapt attention) with a true story that’s as simple and accessible as it is maddeningly addictive. Go now!”
- Time Out, New York
“…Dave Gorman’s latest offering is a much-needed reminder of how a truly gifted performer can delve beyond clever punchlines and make us look afresh at the world. The nearest thing we have to that late, great American raconteur Spalding Gray, he turns monomania into the most compelling and uplifting of confessionals.”
