The virtual reality stand-up series Surrounded is coming back for a second season next month.

Jack Whitehall, Marlon Wayans, and Mae Martin are some of the comedians who will be performing.

The six-part series will be released on the Meta Horizon Worlds VR online video game platform.

The episodes will start on December 29, and there will also be a special holiday episode at 10am PT.

The comedians' performances were recorded at the 2023 Just For Laughs Montréal Comedy Festival.

The audience inspires the jokes, and everyone can be targeted. It started as a comedy show made by Mike Falzone and then became a part of the Metaverse.

Lil Rel Howery will host the show, and it will include performances by Whitehall, Wayans, Martin, Feimster, Normand, Redd, Soder, Pharaoh, Statler, Esparza, Baker, Morril, Booster.

Spencer Griffin, who is in charge of TV Development at Just For Laughs, said that comedy shows in the metaverse are another opportunity for artists to show off their funny skills.
