Richard Ayoade’s Travel Man Series 1 and 2 comes to DVD 29th October 2018
Richard Ayoade along with celebrity guests spends 48 hours in popular world cities and discovers must-see tourist attractions
One of Britain’s sharpest comedians, BAFTA winner Richard Ayoade (The IT Crowd / The Crystal Maze) presents this offbeat travel show as he holidays with his fellow comedians.
First shown on Channel 4 in 2015 Travel Man has run for eight series, the latest of which aired last month.
It was nominated for a BAFTA for Best Features in 2017 and won the Best Factual Programme RTS Midlands awards from 2015 -2017.
In each series Ayoade travels to various cities, and each time with a different celebrity guest. Together they stray off the beaten path to visit unusual attractions in each metropolis, with hands on participation along the way.
Whether its whizzing around Iceland by helicopter with Jessica Hynes, enjoying Dubai with Johnny Vegas, experiencing Berlin in true hipster style with Roisin Conaty, or sharing an awkward bath and massage in Istanbul with Adam Hills – Ayoade’s holidays are certainly not for anyone on a budget!
Not all of the experiences are pleasant though as Ayoade and his companions sample local “delicacies” that are more eye-opening than mouth-watering – we get to witness Stephen Mangan ordering steamed sheep’s head in Marrakech and Mel Giedroyc tasting a calf’s head casserole in Paris.
Some escapades also prove too exhausting for Ayoade, such as flamenco dancing in Seville with Rob Delaney, travelling around Copenhagen by bike with Noel Fielding, or navigating the waters of Venice with Jo Brand.
Travel Man is the perfect informative, yet hilarious and entertaining source of inspiration for your next escape.
Series One Episodes: Barcelona with Kathy Burke, Istanbul with Adam Hills, Iceland with Jessica Hynes and Marrakech with Stephen Mangan.
Series Two Episodes: Vienna with Chris O’Dowd, Paris with Mel Giedroyc, Copenhagen with Noel Fielding, Moscow with Greg Davies, Seville with Rob Delaney, Venice with Jo Brand, Dubai with Johnny Vegas and Berlin with Roisin Conaty.
