More Goodish News


Since we finished making series 3 of Modern Life Is Goodish recently I've had a lot of people asking me when it's going to be on. I don't know yet although it seems likely that, as with series 1 & 2, it will launch in September. I won't be shy of letting you know for sure as and when it gets a confirmed date.

What I wasn't expecting to find out at this stage - but I'm absolutely bloody delighted about - is that the channel already know they want more of it. They've commissioned series 4 and 5. Blimey. Just another 16 hours of stand-up, then.

Apparently, UKTV estimate that the second series reached 7.8 million people... and the biggest audience was 102% up on the slot average. If you watched any of series one and two - thanks. I hope you'll enjoy series three too. And then four and five. When we make them.


PS: This is the corporate announcement which contains more numbers I don't really understand.

Congratulations Dave and the team. Great news.

We've just found it. ..and are loving it. Look forward to series 3!!

@tich77 said...

Excellent news. Sky box reminder already set up

Dave Gorman said...

Thanks all!

@Automaton539 if you mean a recording - we do two shows a night... so there are 4 recordings per 8-episode series. My mailing list gets first dibs on the tickets.

Mark Petar said...

That is great news, the shows have been awesome. Are there any plans on a DVD release or will my Sky+ box just be full of series of Modern Life set to NEVER DELETE?

Dave Gorman said...

@Mark Petar: a) Thanks! b) I don't know about a DVD release. It isn't my decision and I don't wield any influence. You'd be better off asking Dave. (The channel)

Sean Harte said...

Great news. The show is awesome. Can't wait to see you again live in Middlesbrough.

Dave said...

This is fantastic news! Just hope you don't run out of material for your standup shows.

Crackbadger said...

Nice one Dave - at this rate you'll have the world record for consecutive appearances on 'Dave Gorman's Modern Life is Goodish'!

Anita said...

That's great news, still remember you coming to Barrow-in-Furness to meet Cameron McDonald.

Venta said...

Right, must set up Sky+ to capture all the magic as I'm away for most of Sept (as I HAD planned to be seeing a certain favourite comedian in Norwich, but said comedian got said comedian's wife up the duff so it was rescheduled).
Looking forward to catching up with Goodish upon my return - a nice tide-over til the show in January.
Oh and congrats on being recommissioned! Obviously I'm delighted, and obviously you and the team deserve all the accolades.

Grant Wheelwright said...

Really pleased at this. It's a brilliant show and having chatted to you after one of your gigs in Edinburgh couldn't have happened to a nicer bloke.

Katie Clarke said...

That's great news...we are big fans of Mr Gorman in our house! In fact, so much so that we are thinking of packing our flat caps and whippets and venturing down to the big smoke to watch a recording if we can get tickets. What is the lower age limit on tickets please? Keep up the good work :D

Yes!
More comedy gold from one of my favourite comedians!
Congrats dave I can't wait.

Gio said...

I'll start queuing now for 2017! ;^D

An aside - I may have stumbled across a potential broadcast date, via the British Comedy Guide.

On the http://www.comedy.co.uk/guide/tv/dave_gorman_modern_life/details/ page is this:

"Broadcast: Tue 17th September 2013 - Tue 27th October 2015 (Dave)"

Given that October 27th is in fact a Tuesday - that would put episode 1 on September 8th.

Can't wait!
