An Idiot Abroad Show of Ricky Gervais’s Hilarious Podcast

Filled under:

If you’ve heard Ricky Gervais’s hilarious podcast then you know that, even though Ricky’s a really funny guy, the podcast isn’t actually funny because of him. It’s funny because Karl Pilkington has a head like an orange. He may be the stupidest man in all of England. Ricky and his partner Stephen Merchant, because they're smart, have mined this piece of comedic gold for all its worth on their podcast, and now they’re sending it on the road.
Even more Karl Tarkington wisdom can be found on

 Dispatched on what many would term a journey of a lifetime, the ‘little Englander’ will be putting his misgivings to one side as Karl finds out for himself what the fuss in about. He will travel to all the wonders of the world meanwhile Gervais and Merchant will be keeping a watchful eye from London, monitoring every step of Pilkington’s journey. The conclusion of the series will see the weary traveler returning home to report on his findings.


Unfortunately, as far as we can tell, there are currently no plans to bring Karl’s show over to America. The Ricky Gervais Show broadcasts have been airing in a very strange, animated format on HBO and Ricky is, obviously kind of a comedic god even here in the US. So there should be an audience for it, but no one’s bringing Karl and his head like a fucking orange over to the United States. And that’s a shame.

Maybe we can convince them to send Karl our way. If you liked the trailer, live outside the UK, and would like to see Karl Pilkington in An Idiot Abroad, let them know in the comments section below. Demand it.

“I can’t wait to get started. Not ‘cos I’m excited but ‘cos the sooner we start the sooner it will be over. The fact the nurse gave me an injection that protects me from dirty chimps put a dampener on the whole thing. I don’t think Ross Kemp has to have that injection.

yeah, ricky is over the top. but i honestly think he just finds Karl THAT funny. in the promo's for this Pilkington movie it seems like Ricky is trying even harder to crack up at Karl so people will find the laughter contagious and want to get in on the action. i personally don't mind the laugh track though.
