If you have not listened to The Ricky Gervais Show podcasts, or as Ricky says it should be called "The Karl Pilkington Show" podcasts, you have really missed some of the most brilliant funny banter that has been recorded in years. The discovery of Karl Pilkington is one of the best things Gervais and Stephen Merchant have done (Those other things like "The Office, and "Extras" were pretty good too). This podcast, or "audiobook" as this is sometimes referred to has made me laugh harder than almos ...more

First Season:
Never have I listened to anything that was funnier than this show. WARNING: there is a lot of profanity by Ricky Gervais, and a little bit of off-color humor but it is still worth listening to. This was the #1 podcast on the internet when it was running. The show should really be called the Karl Pilkington show, as Ricky Gervais admits. Ricky Gervais was the main character in the British version of the TV show "The Office", and Steve Merchant is also a well known british actor. Karl

HILARIOUS. I have loved Ricky Gervais ever since I saw the British version of "The Office" several years ago, so I was delighted to discover a slew of his podcasts available as audiobooks on iTunes. The podcasts feature Gervais, "The Office" co-writer Stephen Merchant, and clueless, deadpan Karl Pilkington discussing science, history, monkey, and Karl's journal with equal aplomb and ridiculousness.
There were some funny parts, but although found on audible, and had great reviews, this is only what it purports to be. A podcast. I don't know where he found Karl Pilkington, but it was kind of fascinating to hear them play off of each other. Whomever Steve is, he only seems like a watered down version of Gervais himself.
I missed out on this first time around - it was recorded in 2006. Karl Pilkington's view of the world appears logical but the key is to spot the weak link in his chain of logic, which leads his conclusion to be complete rubbish. Just ask Ricky and Stephen. Brightened up my daily walk.
Eh... I don't get the hype. I mean, sure, it's funny, but not that funny. Very unstructured. Basically it's the sort of convo I can have with my buddies over vodka. I can think of better things to listen to while commuting.

1 Compleet zinloze, maar heel entertainende podcastserie.
2 Meer zinloos vermaak.
3 Leuke reeks. Maar nu stop ik hier (voorlopig) wel mee.
HYSTERICAL - Metal pants, I'd eat a knob at night
Absolutely hilarious!!!
