**Dave Gorman: *****With Great PowerPoint Comes Great ResponsibilityPoint***

Dave Gorman, the man behind Dave TV’s hit show Modern Life Is Goodish as well as Are You Dave Gorman? and Googlewhack Adventure, is back on the road with a brand new live show, ***With Great PowerPoint Comes Great ResponsibilityPoint*. 

As the title suggests, he’s bringing his laptop and projector screen with him so expect the ‘King of Powerpoint comedy’ (Guardian) to have more detailed analysis of those parts of life you’ve never stopped to think about before. Hey, not all heroes wear capes.

With support from Nick Doody.

“Dave Gorman is funny and brilliant in equal measure”  The Times

“There is no need to draw a graph to calculate that this is an extremely entertaining evening”  Evening Standard
