Summary

Join Ricky Gervais, Steve Merchant and the glabrous luminary Karl Pilkington for a series of in-depth discussions from the human body to the arts. Ponder along with the comedians as they debate the important things in life and society, from the controversial to the everyday. 

As always, in the midst of taking stances on issues as wide ranging as capital punishment and natural remedies, both Ricky and Steve take the opportunity to draw out Karl's often nonchalant and superficial take on the subjects leading to hilarious tangents. An amusing opportunity to explore fascinating topics.

Very Funny But...

... the part during the last episode where Karl is explaining about when he bought his flat in Manchester is the funniest thing I've ever heard in my 40 journeys around the sun. I laughed so hard I thought my teeth would come out, this was on a very very full train at 7.15am

Very funny and educational

Light and full of good laughs. I’d love to have more from these three or new content. Not a segment without a personal moment of thought or interest.

Forced

The first few episodes are amusing, but the conversations feel so forced that in soon becomes repetitive and mildly offensive as Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant lead Karl Pilkington into ever more unrealistic conversations.

Melon head makes it work.

Good to listen to these three, especially Karl Pilkington, for me he is the lynch pin.
Ricky, You don't need to use profanity so much, you are funny enough without it; don't follow the CPC ( comedy politically correct).
But all that aside, the trio are on top form.
As previous reviewers have mentioned, would be great to hear on some other subjects.

Should be called Ricky and Stephen ask Karl stuff.

Decent throughout, but Ricky goes over the top at times. Karl is typically hilarious, and Stephen provides a fine balance between the two.
