GRIFF RHYS JONES, UK comedy great, actor and star of the iconic Not the Nine O’Clock News, is bringing his hilarious live show of stories, anecdotes and stand-up, Where Was I?, to Australian theatres this October.

Griff will deliver an evening of laughter from forty years of travelling – through family, manhood and the world itself. He has been down rivers and up mountains – literally into Africa, out of India and across oceans in Three Men and A Boat, Mountains, Rivers and other adventures. But he has also crossed the arid wastes of the BBC. He’s navigated being sixty. He’s explored the jungles of indignity. He’s turned downhill without a map in to a career. And along the way, he will address the nature of travel itself, making travel television and the truth about wanderlust and cruises.

Where Was I? uses Griff’s personal jaunts from the last fifteen years to explore universal themes like how to use the self-check in and why we need to get out while we still can. He has sailed a boat to St Petersburg and around the Med. He has travelled in Morocco, the Galapagos, India and Australia. But mostly he has ventured forth to work for TV, making Greatest Cities, A Slow Train to Africa, In Search of the Black Rhino, Burma and The Forgotten Army, several series of Three Men In A Boat and programmes on mountains, rivers, lost routes and tribal art.

He’ll dive in to those “making of” snippets for the real truth about TV travel. He has wandered from the Torres Strait Islands to Mali, from Moscow to Dar es Salaam, ridden “the train of death”, jumped from a burning boat in the Galapagos, sat with tribal elders and been ordered off their island. He has unwillingly climbed up mountains and abseiled down waterfalls, gone window cleaning on New York skyscrapers without a safety rope and clambered through Manchester’s most demanding sewers. He has a few words to say about Budget airlines too.

Where Was I? promises to be a riotous ride around the world. And all without the help of Bear Grylls.
