Apparently, I've been living under a rock for years. Why, you ask? Because I knew nothing of Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant and most of all, Karl Pilkington. They are the trio who create the magic on The Ricky Gervais Show; the most downloaded podcasts of all time. The Ricky Gervais Show has been downloaded over two hundred-fifty MILLION times. The video here is an introduction to Karl Pilkington.
Now of course, I know who Ricky Gervais is; I'm aware of his show "The Office" and I also am aware of his hosting of the Golden Globes, which quite frankly, I thought was brilliant. But the podcasts, the YouTube videos, the audio-books and Karl...the sweet, round headed buffoon, who in my opinion, is the true star of the show, I really didn't know about.
I've downloaded absolutely every free podcast I could get my hands on, and I even bought the first season of his show on iTunes. I can't wait to get the rest of the seasons - they keep me laughing and completely entertained while I'm behind the wheel.
If you want more of Karl, be sure to check out An Idiot Abroad. He's absolutely priceless.
