Welcome To Wherever You Are is a truly global stand-up show, in which comedians perform from wherever on the planet they happen to be, via high quality phone lines and internet video.

The pilot featured award-winning comedians in Jakarta, St Petersburg and Los Angeles. Between them the subjects covered included the things people don't know about women who wear the hijab; the absolutely nonsensical phrases the English use; and the benefits of being gay in America.
