Series 5, Episode 1 - Like Top Gun All Over Again
Armed with a computer, clicker and checked shirt, Dave continues to cast an eye over modern life in his own unique style combining stand-up, visual storytelling, and real-world experimentation. In these eight new mischievous comedy performances, Dave once again turns his attention to the areas of everyday life we normally take for granted- scrutinising the absurdities and contradictions that continue to fascinate and infuriate him.
In this series Dave takes to fatherhood in his usual spirit: playing tricks with singing toys, interrogating children's TV characters, and messing with modern Monopoly. What does the term 'generation' really mean? Why does his Mum use emojis? Are "Life Hacks" really any help at all? All these questions and more, will be answered. Sort of.
Along the way, Dave tests the merits of man versus machine, in all its life-like glory. Plus, he finds himself in a lucrative but compromising situation. Of course no Modern Life Is Goodish would be complete without our host sifting through "the bottom half of the internet" for those real words by real people; digging out the ridiculous, opinionated and downright maddest reader comments to be found on the most frenzy-inducing newspaper articles for, what Dave likes to call, a Found Poem.
