Where: India

Continuing their journey in the footsteps of Marco Polo, Karl and Warwick made their way to India on this week's episode of An Idiot Abroad 3.

They started out with a little Laughter Yoga, which Karl described as more of a "yelp." When asked what make him laugh in his everyday life, he told a story about seeing a baby fall out of a stroller that on;y he would find amusing.

"I saw a woman walking down the street with a carriage and the baby fell out," he said. "It was quite odd, it must have been about 3 or 4 or something and she [the mom] was busy on the phone...and she didn't notice. She saw it hit the curb and it made me laugh and no one else saw it. It was like a little private joke just for me."

Next up, Warwick and Karl were offered parts in the Bollywood movie Chingari. Warwick played a "street goon" and Karl was his "henchman." At first, it seemed like the movie was just a set up just to get Karl dancing but, low and behold, it turned out to be a real movie, and they really star in it, even if they don't feel good about it.

After doing a little dancing, and some bad acting, Warwick, who has had roles in Star Wars and the Harry Potter movies, declared, "nothing feels right about this whole thing" and based on the trailer, he was right.

Bollywood dance lessons are actually becoming a popular tourist activity in Delhi and are now included in several tours. On The Go Tours is just one of the companies offering dance tours for around $79 a day.

After making their Bollywood debut, Karl and Warwick took a train from Delhi to watch the sunrise in the holy city of Varanasi, located on the banks of the Ganges before becoming clowns in the Olympic Circus where the power went out during their performance, a good thing for everyone.

With the Indian leg of their trip completed, they'll move on to China for the show's final episode.
