The most recent trend in the travel show is to attach a comedy to it and there are so many – some serious, some spoofs, some that are the dynamics of an actual scripted comedy and others because they were one big practical joke! Travel Thursdays have just got bigger as we are now adding a comedic spin on it where we are looking at the comedian versus the travel.
Today we look at a different travel show that comedy Genius Ade
Edmonson fronted for ITV. This week we look at the journeys that Ade has had in the oceans In a show called Ade at Sea.
The show which started in 2014, was a thirty minute documentary where each week he would venture around the UK by water.
It saw the comedian travel to different areas of the U.K. To do a variation of tasks to learn about the culture related around the water in different areas of the Great British Isles. For example, he sails to mainland Scotland to learn about kipper and herring fishing.
Other adventures that Ade gets up to include meeting Robert the Ropemaker in the Thames, sail down the River Mersey, learns about tugboats and cargo ships and wind farms.
