Joel McHale bit o' Blarney for 'The Getaway' on Esquire (VIDEO)

Tune in alert for Esquire's "The Getaway."

From executive producers Anthony Bourdain and Zero Point Zero Production comes a new original series that explores the world’s greatest cities through the eyes of a revolving cast of travel-loving celebrities who know them inside and out.

What fun this assignment is for a celebrity! Each hour-long episode of the 10-part series "The Getaway" follows a star to their favorite place on earth, where they provide the inside track on the best things to do, food to eat, and places to hang out. They’ll hit the streets and enjoy the life of a local, doing what they do, eating what they eat, and going where they go.

Additional episodes head to Hong Kong with Aziz Ansari ("Parks and Recreation"); Paris, France with Aisha Tyler ("Archer"); Kingston, Jamaica with Grammy Award-winning performer-songwriter Eve; and San Juan, Puerto Rico with acclaimed chef José Andrés.

"The Getaway" series premieres this summer at a TBD date on the Esquire Network.


For the April 23 premiere episode, Joel McHale (The Soup, Community) hits the historic cobblestone trading lanes of Belfast, Northern Ireland as he samples the local whiskey, tries a tweed wardrobe on for size, and checks out the wheels of a true Irish automobile export, the DeLorean.
