Esquire on Tuesday released a sneak peek of the premiere, in which McHale talks about the country's pride in building the Titanic.

"It's amazing thing that this beautiful city celebrates a ship that they built that killed like 1,500 people," he says, deadpan. "I guess you can celebrate anything."

He also taste-tests a potato-filled traditional Irish breakfast.

The 10-episode series is executive produced by Anthony Bourdain and Zero Point Zero Production. Other celebrities featured in subsequent episodes will include Rashida Jones, Aisha Tyler, Chris O'Dowd, Josh Gad, Ryan Kwanton, Eve, Seth Meyers and Aziz Ansari.
