Vice Media’s youth-focused TV network Viceland has green lit the new comedy series, Brexit Stage Left with UK comedian Jamali Maddix.

In the aftermath of the UK triggering Article 50, Maddix (pictured) — who also hosted Viceland’s Hate Thy Neighbour — and three of his stand-up comedian friends Fern Brady, Alfie Brown and Sean McLoughlin go across Europe with their stand-up comedy tour to find out if anyone outside Britain cares about the UK’s exit from the European Union.

Each episode (4×30) of the Viceland-produced series is centered around one comedian and their relationship with that city.

The group tours Dublin, Amsterdam, Berlin and Copenhagen and samples the weird and well-known delights of each city and befriend locals before performing a live, stand-up gig.

“Viceland is fast becoming a new home for the next generation of UK comedy talent. Jamali came to us with the concept and in a matter of weeks, we were up and running on location. This is a great example of how great ideas can become a reality in a very short space of time at Viceland,” Yonni Usiskin, executive producer of Brexit Stage Left, said in a statement.
