Alex Fletcher, BT, 24th September 2018

Return of the series where comedians Joel Dommett and Nish Kumar wring laughs out of visiting places populated by people who are far tougher than them. First up, the Peruvian Andes, where the duo prove to be rubbish porters and are strangely reluctant to impale themselves on cacti.

Comedy Central to film Joel & Nish Vs The World Series 2

Joel & Nish Vs The World, the comic travel programme in which Joel Dommett and Nish Kumar test their 'brains and brawn', will return to Comedy Central for a second series.

British Comedy Guide, 26th January 2018

This week, Joel Dommett's globe-trotting challenge show finds him off to Kenya to ascertain whether he's tough enough to live the life of a Maasai tribesman. He is soon being thrashed with sticks, mocked mercilessly for his piss-poor jumping skills, and force-fed goat, while his pal Nish Kumar stands there making quips and being surplus to requirements. Though Kumar does discover that his name means "no vagina" in Swahili, so there's that.

Joel Dommett interview

Joel Dommett reveals how he got the ultimate revenge on a school bully.

The Sun, 18th September 2017

A thinly veiled excuse to show buff comedian Joel Dommett with his top off, this new series finds him travelling the globe to pit himself against some of the most rugged folk there are. His friend Nish Kumar goes along, too, just to watch and quip. This week, they head to Mongolia where Dommett tries the archery, horsemanship and wrestling central to its nomadic population. He makes a royal tool of himself attempting the latter.

Very nice work if you can get it. For Nish Kumar anyway. For Joel Dommett it is more painful.
