Show Summary
Standup comedy with a single mission. During a drunken evening with his flatmate Danny Wallace, comedian Dave Gorman sets out to meet another Dave Gorman, whom he knows to be the assistant manager of East Fife football club, in Scotland. With a camcorder and Polaroid camera, he records the encounter and is soon set on meeting other namesakes. Wallace (sitting among the minimal studio audience for these TV shows) then suggests that Gorman try to meet a total of 54 namesakes, one for every card in a pack, including the jokers. Standing on stage, Dave Gorman, the standup comedian, explains how he set out to achieve this, flashing up on to a screen whatever is necessary to prove his labours: tickets, aeroplane boarding cards, photos, telephone directories and more, analysing by graphs and statistical analysis how many MPDG (Miles Per Dave Gorman) he has had to travel to meet, among others, Dave Gorman the semi-retired lighthouse technician, Dave Gorman the second-hand bookshop owner, and Dave Gorman the American politician.

Based on a show mounted on the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, this was simple yet effective comedy. Gorman is a likeable humorist, and his blending of wit with the application he applied to his odd odyssey was a winning one. A one-joke idea maybe, but finely sustained.
