About the show
International Waters is a pop culture comedy quiz show where land laws do not apply. Join host Dave Holmes and competing teams of world-famous comedians from the US and UK in a hilarious and lively test of pop culture knowledge (and the ability to make up baloney when that knowledge fails). It’s part panel show, part trivia quiz and all laughs. It’s also a little embarrassed it wrote that last sentence.
