On the face of it this sounds as if it could have been inspired by the City Slickers films, where urban jokers get lessons in the real world from hard-bitten cowboys. The jokers here are Sean Lock and Jon Richardson, famed stand-up comics in Britain but entirely unknown in the backwoods of Louisiana, where they stay in an insect-ridden shack alongside Creole cowboys and Cajun swampmen – who, reputation has it, wrestle alligators and castrate bulls with their bare hands.
Whether Sean and Jon are up to the rigours of Bayou life remains to be seen: what really hurts is that the locals don’t find them funny.
Part one of two. Comedians and 8 Out of 10 Cats team captains Sean Lock and Jon Richardson head to Louisiana to live, work and play with Creole cowboys in the bayou. They are asked to help castrate a bullock and while Sean impresses his hosts by having a go at playing the washboard, Jon's vegetarianism leaves them nonplussed. Stuck in an insect-ridden shack with frogs in the toilet, cattle to herd across state, and the prospect of a journey into alligator-infested swamps, how will the duo survive?
