Can you turn the odd things people say online into poetry? Why not? Dave Gorman shows us
Dave Gorman is a British comedian who has been gradually become very popular in the UK. His shows are very peculiarly British eccentric flavour about them. They usually center around his slightly obsessive nature and curious detail. Late last year, he finally got a regular TV show “Modern Life is Good-ish.”
The show was very well received because it was brilliantly written and delivered.
One of the highlights was a section of the show called “Found Poems” where he’d trawled the internet for daft things people had posted, and turned them into poems e.g. Bad Voltage
