Dave Gorman, Genius | [BBC Audiobooks]

Dave Gorman, Genius

Genius is the comedy series, broadcast on Radio 4, that sees Dave Gorman and a celebrity guest chew over ridiculous, unworkable but sometimes "genius" inventions from the public. Genius invites listeners to air those incredible concepts that strike after one-too-many drinks at the pub: not necessarily ideas that are worthy, or even very well thought through, but have a hint of genius.

Publisher's Summary

Remember your plan for pedestrian fast and slow lanes? Or even that idea about gym equipment fitted with dynamos hooked up to the national grid?

Genius is the comedy series, broadcast on Radio 4, that sees Dave Gorman and a celebrity guest chew over ridiculous, unworkable but sometimes "genius" inventions from the public. Genius invites listeners to air those incredible concepts that strike after one-too-many drinks at the pub: not necessarily ideas that are worthy, or even very well thought through, but have a hint of genius.

After listening to as many pitches as time permits, Dave's guest chooses his or her favourite two ideas, leaving the audience to vote on which of the two they think is the most inspired. The pitcher with the most votes wins a huge sense of self-fulfilment and the legendary Genius trophy.

Guests include Paul Daniels, Richard Madeley, John Fortune, Neil Innes, and Stewart Lee. Dave Gorman is a multi award winning comedian, writer and best-selling author.

    "Better than the TV show"

    Gorman is on top form in the radio version of Genius, much better than the TV show that followed.

    "Fun, bitesized episodes"

    Each episode consists of Dave Gorman discussing, with his special guest, ideas submitted by the audience to decide whether they are 'genius' or not.

    The ideas are very tongue in cheek and include things like spokey dokeys on the millenium wheel, a 99p coin etc. The discussion usually ends up pointing out the problems and brillianace of the ideas with a comedy slant. It is always amusing and often laugh out loud funny and Dave Gorman keeps the right pace throughout the program. Perfect for a short bus train journey where you dont want to get into a full book.
