Summary

It's the complete second season of The Ricky Gervais Show - six episodes in one tidy package. It's packed full of all-new drivel, as Ricky and Steve Merchant forage through the long grass of Karl Pilkington's brain. Plus, there's lots more from Karl's diary, as well as the unwelcome return of "Rockbusters".

Ricky Gervais, of course, is the award-winning co-creator and star of The Office and Extras. Steve Merchant, who also stars in Extras, is his long-time creative partner. Karl is a humanoid life form of undetermined origin.

"If Mr. Gervais made only podcasts for the rest of his career, I'd keep downloading." (The New York Times)

Five-star Drivel

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.

Stick with season one

no where near as much value as season one - Ricky is overpowering and often interrupts just as things are getting funny

Good banter

The 3 are back again. Definitely worth listening to if you are a fan of the first season but in my opinion not as good as first season.

As funny as ever.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

If that friend was a human being capable of humour then I would send it their way instantly.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Ricky Gervais Show?

Every time Karl Pilkington opened his mouth.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Almost every scene was utter comedic perfection.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Not necessarily, it was split into episodes. But i certainly wanted to finish an entire episode before i stopped.

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.

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).

Pilkington! Brilliant!

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.

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

What did you love best about Ricky Gervais Show?

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.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

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.
