Gervais and Merchant sends an idiot abroad., 23 September 2010
Author: Richard Hill from United Kingdom

Ricky Gervais and Steve Merchant offers their best friend, Karl Pilkington, the opportunity to visit the seven wonders of the world. Karl is not keen as he's never been a keen traveller and prefers staying in his comfort zone. So the documentary has an extremely 'fish out of water' feel about it. And Karl sees the world differently!!! He's the funniest man on the planet when he's confused, tired or struggling - and he constantly experiences all three from start to finish. Gervais and Merchant keeps in contact with him throughout his travels, ordering him to do challenges and hoping he'll have a breakdown. Karl is very politically incorrect but he gets away with it because he is an idiot.
