The World of Karl Pilkington, Paperback
4.5 out of 5 (2 ratings)


A collection of the best moments from the 'Ricky Gervais Show' with further musings from Karl Pilkington, star of Sky 1's 'An Idiot Abroad'.

Karl Pilkington's is a brilliant mind, locked inside a perfectly round head and uncluttered by the unhelpful constraints of logic or common sense.

He both baffles and enlightens with his take on topics as diverse as population control, the rights of monkeys and how long you can stay alive with your head chopped off.

Featuring the best conversations from 'The Ricky Gervais Show' podcasts and original illustrations and scribblings by Karl Pilkington, this is a unique trip into the mind of our most innovative visionary - or, as Gervais and Merchant know him, 'the funniest man alive in Britain today'.

Review by

This book is a compilation of transcripts from interviews/conversations Ricky and Stephen had with Karl during the Ricky Gervais podcasts... and I give you fair warning, do NOT read this while drinking a liquid of any kind. It is hysterical... and I bet it would be even better heard live. If you enjoy Gervais' TV shows (The Office, Extras) AND British humor, you'll 'have a laugh' with this book. It was certainly an excellent diversion at the end of our busy, busy Christmas holidays.

Transcripts from podcasts. Some I'd heard others were new to me, all were hilarious!
