    DARA AND ED’S ASIAN ADVENTURE

    Dara and Ed's Asian Adventure, a brand new three part prime time travelogue series, has been commissioned for BBC Two, featuring Dara O Briain and Ed Byrne.

    Following the success of Dara and Ed's Great Big Adventure which broadcast on BBC Two last summer, long term friends, comedians Dara O Briain and Ed Byrne pack their cases once more as they embark on an expedition of a lifetime crossing 3500 miles from the bright lights of modern day Malaysia to the jungles of Myanmar, exploring the rich history of the region and its links with Europe and the UK.

    Dara and Ed will begin their journey in the glittering metropolis of Kuala Lumpur, where they'll explore the Malay sense of humour, have a go at lion dancing, and discover why Malaysia is one of the most diverse countries in the world. From there, they will travel north through the Malaysian peninsula, meeting indigenous tribes and taking part in a chicken beauty pageant, before crossing into Thailand where they will discover how the worst excesses of tourism are affecting the wildlife of Phuket. They will then head north to visit a Buddhist monastery which is home to one of the world’s toughest detoxes. Their adventure continues in Myanmar, where Dara and Ed will explore this little-known country which has only recently opened up to tourism, ending their journey in the legendary city of Mandalay.
