Three Men Go to New Eng­land

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Tues­day, 8.30pm, ABC1 If you’re fond of sand dunes and salty air, quaint lit­tle vil­lages here and there, you’ll prob­a­bly en­joy tonight’s ad­ven­tures in Cape Cod Bay with those three men of renown, Dara O’ Briain, Rory McGrath and Griff Rhys Jones. The lads are in search of a boat they can float along the New Eng­land coast to join the birthday party flotilla cel­e­brat­ing the 125th an­niver­sary of the Statue of Lib­erty. On the way to Province­town in a dif­fer­ent boat, they in­tend to do some fish­ing and see a whale or two. As all good fish­er­men know, the best way to catch fish is to be dis­tracted by some­thing else. Sure enough, the sight­ing of a pi­lot whale dis­tracts the lads, and the call ‘‘ fish on’’ from their helms­man leads them back to their strain­ing rods. How­ever, co­me­di­ans are not al­ways funny and they don’t nec­es­sar­ily make good fish­er­men. Province­town, with the high­est pop­u­la­tion of gay cou­ples in the US, proves more in­ter­est­ing.
