Messrs Gervais and Merchant state several times that these podcasts are drivel. I agree whole heartedly. It is complete drivel, but it's funny drivel and very well put together.
Where else can you hear discussions (did I say discussions ?) on topics as diverse as nasty frogs that are so angry that they can kill 1000 people, spiders that go bald when you rub them, putting mirrors on the moon and how to fend off a killer octopus (by calling it a knobhead and giving it a kick) ?
Can't wait for the third series.
Too old and too commented on to add anything new. I've been listening to them since they were made. They still make me laugh... I feel like I know them. Like they're me mates, coz I've heard their voices so many times.Very funny..
My perfect night in: Cup of tea, all my wonderful audible books and dramas and a comfortable seat on top of my bed. Nuf sed'
Call it what you like; sickness, disease, illness, plague, ailment. I have now got myself the Karl Pilkington sickness, I cannot get enough of the man. Being alongside Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant (who is the funniest man ever) it makes for a sidesplitting and winning trio.
I can't get enough!
What Doesn't Kill You, Only Makes You Stronger.
Although coming in at only half the episodes of season 1, its still well worth the money. Never a dull moment and nonsense that keeps you in a happy mood regardless of how badly your day is going!
"laugh out loud funny"
Ricky Gervais is the perfect antidote to a boring car trip. My wife and I listened to the first and second seasons of his podcast over the holidays. At times I worried that I might have to pull the car over because I was laughing so hard.
"Kept me laughing"
I love this podcast - I have listened to parts of it several times. It is tough to describe but well worth a listen. I find these 3 very funny. Ricky Gervais can sometimes get a bit loud, but it is understandable.
This is for anyone who is a fan of Karl, it's a must have podcast.
"3 Guys 1 Moron"
Typical content from these 3 friends (Ricky, Steve, & Karl), so hilarious as usual.
If you have never listened, or watched, anything from this trio, than let me sum it up for you right now. Remember being in high school, hanging out with 2 of your close friends? Well picture that one of the 2 friends is a half-witted, uneducated, pea brained, balding twat (Karl). What would you (Ricky), and the other friend (Steve), do for entertainment? You would probably spend a great deal of time f***ing with, or making fun of, the dopey, dumb twat (The Ricky Gervais Show).
The obscure perspective of Karl pilkington will make you sad for the people like him in the world and simultaneously declare him to be brilliant!
"Best Podcast Ever"
These 3 are hilarious enough to listen to repeatedly....great stress relief, or mood enhancement tool. Karl Pilkington is an idiot, and the premise is that Ricky & Steve just harass & confuse him & record the results. Brilliant.
I can and have listened to these over and over again and still find them completely hilarious and entertaining.
"The hilarious podcast in full"
There's some overlap between the HBO show and this podcast (obviously). But frankly, when the conversation is this funny, you don't mind revisiting it.
"Laugh after Laugh"
I think Ricky and Steve do a great job at instigating Karl to say what he says, which is what really makes these podcasts funny.
An Idiot on Podcasts
"You're either a fan or you're not"
If you love Ricky, Karl and Steve then you will not be disappointed in this, their second venture into the world of podcasts. I thought it was as funny as the first season and still embarrassed myself frequently in public places as I listened to it. I finally realized that being known about town as the woman who wears her Ipod, bursting into periodic laughter over nothing and giggling to herself sounded like a character that Karl may have grown up with. But I don't care, I love Ricky Gervais and his crew and his podcasts never, ever let me down.
