Listening to Ricky Gervais berate, and Stephen Merchant loose his patience with the “shaved monkey” “fucking coconut face” that is Karl Pilkington is the most side splitting way to spend your time. One example is the time Karl shows a bit of his ass to the next door neighbor while washing the dishes without using his thumbs, just to see what it would be like. Perfect for car rides.
Here's what I said then (Feb. 27 – Mar. 5)
Available for free (but not free for much longer) The Ricky Gervais Show is a hilarious radio show where Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant talk with their unusual village idiot friend Karl Pilkington and tease and prod him. Karl's diaries are absolutely phenomenal.
It's a bit hard to describe why the show is funny, like a lot of humorous things, you really just have to experience it for yourself. But for a taste here is a Karl quote: “You'll never see an old person eating a Twix, but they always buy ornaments”.
The new shows should be up Feb. 28th on podcast (this is the most highly listened to show on podcast ever, as they will boast all the time), even with a small fee I can't recommend taking a listen enough. It's brilliant.
