Amidst the middle of international lockdowns and the coronavirus pandemic, Russell Howard got the chance to travel to New Zealand and Australia - after copious negative tests - and resume gigging.

He jumped in with both feet and set off on his Australasian adventure, back performing in front of packed crowds of thousands after almost a year of enforced stage silence, and discovering the two strangely familiar, yet very different, nations - and meeting their people - as he went.

At a time when we've never felt further apart as a world, he discovered what our cousins across the seas are really like, celebrating both our differences and unexpected shared passions.
