Andrew Maxwell presents some of the world's best comedians, who perform from wherever on the planet they happen to be via high-quality phone lines and internet video.

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.

This episode features acts from Australia, South Africa and Sweden (via New Zealand). First up is Steph Tisdell @StephTisdell, the First Nations Australian stand-up whose big break was victory in the Deadly Funny competition in 2014. Joining Steph is Schalk Bezuidenhout @schalkiebez an Afrikaaner from Cape Town whose show South African White Boy will be at the Edinburgh Festival this summer. Finally there’s the international stand-up stalwart, Al Pitcher @TheAlPitcher who dials in from Sweden to give us the lowdown on life in Stockholm.

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.
