This is fun, but for sheer entertainment value I think I prefer the contemporaneous adventures of comedian Dave Gorman who, after a drunken bet, hunted down people sharing his own name (including two women who changed their name by deed poll), which became the stage show "Are You Dave Gorman?" (broadcast by BBC as "The Dave Gorman Collection" in 2001).

yes I like that one too. notable that the hunted name needs to have a particular unglamorous quality for the project to be interesting -- allan is good, as is dave, as would be keith or derek or perhaps stuart.
