David Baddiel and Richard Herring in Armenia

Veteran stand-ups – and long-time comedy colleagues - David Baddiel and Richard Herring take an eight-hour flight to the mountainous country of Armenia and head to the capital city of Yerevan, one of the world’s oldest continuously inhabited cities.

Here they inject five and-a-half million dram into the local economy by setting up a talent contest, playing the national game of chess with human-sized pieces and sabre dancing in operatic drag on the city’s most elaborate monument. And, as a treat, they try out the poshest restaurant the city has to offer. Mind you, with things like bone marrow on the menu, perhaps it’s not quite such a treat after all.
