The Funniest Travel Moments on TV
Are you sick of watching boring travel documentaries? Get your travel TV fix a more entertaining way by watching these clips, featuring some of the funniest travel moments from shows such as Flight of the Conchords, Curb Your Enthusiasm and Peep Show. You’ll see a guy punch a fish, an argument about shorts and some less than exciting zip-lining. Don’t watch these videos if you’re easily offended or adverse to a bit of colourful language!
Eastbound and Down
Washed up baseball player Kenny Powers winds up in Mexico, where he struggles to fit in with the local way of life. The whole second season of Eastbound and Down is set in Mexico and is definitely worth watching, especially if you’ve ever lived abroad.
An Idiot Abroad
Karl Pilkington teaches some South African children about sex and ends up having to explain why he is bald. Karl is actually a real person, although there is a persistent rumour that he’s played by an actor called Graham
Curb Your Enthusiasm
Larry David gets annoyed when he has to sit next to someone on a plane who is wearing shorts. This is one of my favourite shows and you should check out a full episode if you haven’t seen it before!
A seemingly routine boat trip goes horribly wrong when they accidentally catch a fish. There is also an Inbetweeners movie set in Greece, and a sequel set in Australia.
While on a stag trip, Jeremy runs over a dog and then finds creative ways to get rid of the evidence. Peep show is one of my all time favourite shows, try and find some full episodes to watch – you won’t regret it!
Cartman realises that zip-lining isn’t all that exciting. Watching this episode has actually put me off zip-lining, although I’ll probably still try it one day.
Flight of the Conchords
New Zealander Jermaine starts dating an Australian while living in New York. As a New Zealander, I got asked about Flight of the Conchords all the time while travelling when it was on TV. Before that I’m pretty sure it was Lord of the Rings, now unfortunately it might be annoying pop star Lorde.
Have you ever been in any of these situations? Do you think these are the funniest travel moments on TV or can you suggest some others?
