Ricky Gervais Guide to... THE ENGLISH

More of the same from Ricky, Steve and Karl. Karl has developed a more urbane accent.

In the free short version, Ricky stated that it was "a quid" whereas actually it is ?1.98. I suspect that at some time in the future they will all be bundled into a series for a discount. So only for the must-listen-now fans......

Money aside, Ricky's humour is always innovative, clever and funny - and never repeats itself. Nice to have a programme these days that is aimed at the English - and in particular those in Reading!
