DAVE Gorman is heading for a third sell-out at York Barbican in quick succession when he returns with his With Great PowerPoint Comes Great ResponsibilityPoint, show.

Gorman first brought his laptop and projector screen to York in October for two nights and once more it will be in constant playful use on Friday, so vital to the 8pm gig that it forms the electronic partner in Gorman’s “double act”.

Gorman’s schtick this time is to “deliver detailed analysis of those parts of life you’ve never stopped to think about before”, and in truth may never think about again, as he discusses daytime TV. In the tradition of comedians and psychologists, he plays the outsider, spotting the loops and the loopholes in patterns of behaviour.

He has asked expressly that no-one should mention the precise content of his show, to avoid spoiling it for those still to see it. However, Gorman disciples will not be surprised to learn that favourite themes from his Modern Life Is Goodish show come to the fore: online behaviour; celebrity click-baits; family matters and the troubling interaction of technology and the rapidly changing media.

Alarmed by what he perceives as the online media's descent into tittle tattle and entrapment to make you click that mouse, he makes a plea for a return to honesty. Out must go all that "stuff", the fake news, the tricks and downright lies, the exaggerations, the misinformation and the disinformation, he reasons.

In that case, it is wholly the truth that tickets are still available, but you need to hurry up with your booking on 0844 854 2757, at yorkbarbican.co.uk or in person from the Barbican box office.
