The Karl Pilkington Show, More Like!
18 January 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When you watch this show, it is hard to not be in stitches at what Karl says. Ricky's laugh also adds some comedic value to some of what Karl has said.

This show includes much dialogue from the earlier podcasts of Gervais, Merchant and Pilkington, but has been given a kind of Hanna Barbera- esque animated backdrop. We are treated to scenes during the conversations to give us an idea of how this would/did happen in real life. It also includes newer dialogue, i.e. An Idiot Abroad is even mentioned in some episodes.

Despite the fact that the Show is called "The Ricky Gervais Show", the real star is Karl Pilkington. I assume it was called this because Ricky was more famous than Karl when the podcasts started (if Karl was famous at all at this point). Fans of Ricky's laugh will not be disappointed to hear it in most, if not all, episodes, usually after Karl has given his point of view on something.

I would highly recommend that you watch this, along with "An Idiot Abroad", which also stars Karl Pilkington, but with less screen time for Gervais and Merchant.
