International Waters

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.

Our newest MaxFun show is International Waters!

International Waters is a pop-cultural comedy quiz show where land laws do not apply. Join me (Jesse Thorn) in the lawless waters off the coast of wherever, as a team of comedians from the United States battles one from the United Kingdom for WORLD SUPREMACY.

Our pilot episode features Paul Scheer and Janet Varney representing the US of A in a skirmish with Tom Parry and Josie Long in London, England. Plus an interview with director Rian Johnson (Brick, The Brothers Bloom), who was also kind enough to host a bonus round.

Listen to the show online using the player above, or subscribe to the show in iTunes now!

If you use a non-iTunes podcatcher, use this feed: http://www.maximumfun.org/feeds/iw.xml.

For the time being, we're planning on making International Waters a once-a-month event, with the next episode coming during the MaxFunDrive. Our hope is that the drive will generate the capital we need to keep the show running, so if you like our first episode and want to hear more, give generously and tell us you want more IW!
