English language comedy clubs, the first of their kind, are starting to open in Zagreb, Moscow, Poland, Holland, Bahrain - and even Japan. But will the local audiences warm to the British sense of humour? Will they get the jokes? Will they even understand the language they are in? Presented by Julian Clary.

Stand-up comedy has become a very British export. Julian Clary explores the bizarre reality behind a new trend that has seen British comics brave violence, crime and total incomprehension in cities across the world.

Julian Clary meets the intrepid British comics who take their acts abroad to places where stand-up is totally alien. From January 2007.
