Dave Gorman on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" Thursday March 31

Dave Gorman, whose show DAVE GORMAN'S GOOGLEWHACK! ADVENTURE is currently playing at UCLA'S Macgowan Little Theater (through April 10), will appear on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" on Thursday March 31. "Tonight" airs at 11:35 PM on NBC ( Channel 4 in New York)

Critics have raved:

The New York Times says: "Mr. Gorman delivers his half-embarrassed tales with the precision of Mussolini's trains" and "his magnetic performance displays some of the oddball intensity of the early routines of Steve Martin (one of Mr. Gorman's heroes)."

The Los Angeles Times says that "While Gorman's timing is impeccable, he also weaves disparate narrative threads with the seamless assurance of an accomplished raconteur...his Googlewhack adventure is s a richly varied, delightful and at times surprisingly touching human tapestry."

The New York Post says Gorman turns a "bizarre, quixotic obsession into a riotous show."

Time Out New York calls the show "engrossing" and begs you not to get Dave Gorman drunk.

DAVE GORMAN'S GOOGLEWHACK! ADVENTURE is the story of one man and his obsession with an obscure Internet word-game called googlewhacking. The goal is to find a combination of two words that yield only one result when entered into the Google search engine. While most word combinations entered receive multiple hits (in the thousands), a googlewhack is a relatively rare occurrence. It occurs when two unrelated words are entered into the Google search engine and only one hit (website) results, thus becoming a googlewhack. Examples have included: unicyclist/periscopes, dork/turnspit or pomegranate/filibusters (they are no longer googlewhacks because of the show and the book).

DAVE GORMAN'S GOOGLEWHACK! ADVENTURE is produced by WestBeth Entertainment, Jam Theatricals, and UCLA Live. It played New York's Village Theatre for 11 weeks in autumn of 2004.
