Either Terrifying or Hilarious

I’d like to use today’s post to draw your attention to ‘The Ricky Gervais Podcast’.

In case you’ve been living under a rock, Ricky Gervais is the creator and star of ‘The Office’ (The original British version) and ‘Extras’.

The podcast is free and as it’s description says ‘occasional’, so don’t expect it to update every few days. That being said, there are ten episodes currently available with enough comedy meat to sate even the largest comedy hunger…including a two-hour ‘best of’ episode from ‘The Ricky Gervais Show’.

The main reason I want to draw your attention to this is just so you can experience the wonder of Karl Pilkington.

Put simply, I haven’t managed to work it out yet. Karl Pilkington is either one of the dumbest, most nonsensical guys who’ve ever lived, or he is quite simply the world’s foremost deadpan comedy genius.

I’ll leave you to work it out.

‘The Ricky Gervais Podcast’ is available through iTunes. It’s free and awesome.

Karl is indeed awesome, though without the legendary witty brilliance of Ricky and Steve, I don't think he would come across all that well.

I have a Ricky Gervais fansite, check it out at
