Enjoy Celebrity Radio’s Comedian Dave Gorman Interview…..
Dave Gorman is an English author, comedian, and television presenter.
He has performed comedy shows on stage in which he tells stories of extreme adventures and presents the evidence to the audience in order to prove to them that they are true stories.
He was a stand-up comedian before he became famous for Are You Dave Gorman?.
Gorman took a break from stand-up to undertake a sponsored hitchhike around the pacific rim countries. Dave claims this isn’t true but I believe Wikipedia more than the truth!
He began and ended this journey at the district municipality of Ucuelet on the Ucluelet Peninsula in Canada.
He returned to stand-up in 2009 with a show called Sit Down, Pedal, Pedal, Stop and Stand Up whose unique feature was that he cycled 1,563 miles from the southernmost point of Great Britain to the easternmost to the westernmost and then to the northernmost, with a gig following each night.
Dave currently presents for DAVE TV ‘Modern Life Is Goodish’….
Belfield gave him a call to find out about his life and career….
Gorman has two older brothers, Jonathan and Richard, and a fraternal twin called Nick. He married his wife, Beth, on 8 October 2010.
He is a pescatarian and lists his hobbies as photography, cycling, rock balancing, and playing poker and darts. Staffordshire University awarded him an honorary doctorate in 2006. He is a fan of Liverpool FC.
During a drunken binge in Austin, Texas in 2003, Gorman had a cartoonish rendition of his driver’s licence tattooed on his arm, complete with the incorrect formatting of his birth date due to differences in how the United States and United Kingdom write out dates of birth.
He states that he regrets this decision “100%”.
In his stand-up show Dave Gorman’s Powerpoint Presentation at the 2011 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Gorman stated that he is an “atheist from a Christian background”.
However, he is frequently incorrectly assumed to be Jewish; for example, the Jewish magazine JLifestyle includes him in a list of “literary Jews
