Modern Life Is Goodish
One of my favourite shows of the last 2 years from the legend that is Dave Gorman.
There's a new series (3) scheduled for this autumn on Dave, with another 2 series already comissioned.
It was announced today that the ratings and critical hit, Dave Gorman Modern Life Is Goodish will return to Dave (the channel) for a further two series.
With the third series set to broadcast during autumn, this makes the show one of Dave's (the channel, again) longest running and most successful commissions.
The Liberty Bell Productions show, written by and performed by DAVE GORMAN, already held the accolade of being one of the highest rating shows for Dave and further increased its audience, in every respect, on the record-breaking first run.
The second series reached 7.8 million individuals, with an average audience of 577K (and peaking with 651K for episode 6 (up +102% on the slot average).
The series also successfully attracted the key young and upmarket audience to the channel with 43% 16-34 and 56% ABC1s.
Presented using DAVE GORMAN's unique blend of stand-up and documentary-comedy, the show gives a whole new take on the things we normally take for granted.
In the last series spam emails, meaningless world records, Dickinson's Real Deal, 'Greatest' Hits Albums, chewing gum ad campaigns, the rise of the machines, government e-petitions, what to do with a found camera and one suspiciously prolific celebrity journalist were all investigated, dissected and, occasionally, the subject of some well-meaning mischief.
And, of course, GORMAN was still sifting through the most ridiculous, opinionated and downright maddest reader comments to be found on the most frenzy-inducing articles he could find online, as each week he took such comments and weaved them into, what he likes to call, a Found Poem.
Series 1 & 2 are available on sky boxsets.
I can highly recommend S1 E1 for anyone who hasn't seen the show before.
