Welcome To Wherever You Are is a truly global stand-up show, in which comedians perform from wherever on the planet they happen to be, via high quality phone lines and internet video, to a live audience in the BBC Radio Theatre at Broadcasting House, London.

The show is hosted by Andrew Maxwell, a multiple Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee and a regular on The News Quiz, The Now Show, and who has presented his own Radio 4 series, Andrew Maxwell's Public Enemies. He also hosted one Radio 4's Fresh From The Fringe last year.

This pilot features award-winning comedians in Jakarta, St Petersburg, and Los Angeles, giving the range of observations a little wider than in a typical stand-up show - the subjects covered include being the freedoms afforded to women; how powerful Vladimir Putin really is; and why Canada probably doesn't exist.
