Ricky Gervais: 'An Idiot Abroad' is 'my gift to the world'

Fans of Ricky Gervais are probably at least a little familiar with Karl Pilkington.The famous-by-association pal of "The Office" co-creators Gervais and Stephen Merchant appears in their podcast and its animated HBO counterpart, "The Ricky Gervais Show."But on Jan. 22, Pilkington finally gets his own showcase with "An Idiot Abroad." The Science Channel broadcast of the British series follows him as he cluelessly visits the Seven Wonders of the World. And when the trio spoke at the Television Critics Association's Winter Press Tour, via satellite, their favorite episode seemed like a clear choice."It's one of the funniest two minutes of television I've ever been involved with," Gervais says of a Jordan hostage training program that required Pilkington's kidnapping. "He thought it was real." Pilkington doesn't see it that way, but there's a lot he and Gervais don't see eye-to-eye on. "I think of him as the missing link," says Gervais.

The Ricky Gervais Show Season Two to Premiere on January 14

The Ricky Gervais Show  was most certainly HBO's most riotous new series of 2010, and in my opinion was the funniest show of the year. The half-hour animated comedy has a simple premise: it's an animated podcast. Of course, the fun of it comes with the content of the podcast, which centers around Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant (both of whom created and produced the shows  The Office  and  Extras ) talking to their friend Karl Pilkington. That sounds like a boring premise until you take into account that Karl is absolutely off-his-rocker insane. Gervais and Merchant just act as catalysts and commentators to Pilkington's insane ramblings, which grow nuttier and nuttier with each episode. In one episode, Pilkington straight-facedly describes U.S.-weaponized dolphins that were dispersed into the Atlantic ocean by Hurricane Katrina. To Read More  Click Here.

Louie Visits Ricky Gervais' Office

Jeers to Ricky Gervais for committing comedic malpractice on Louie. The increasingly lazy British cutup - witness the low-effort, low-impact HBO cartoon of his podcasts, The Ricky Gervais Show - treated his guest role as Louis C.K.'s doctor on the stand-up's wildly uneven new FX sitcom like, well, a bad joke. Cackling and needling his patient—including repeatedly telling him he has AIDS (what a panic!) - he seemed less like a physician than like TV's Ricky Gervais "having a laff." After his blasé turn as host of the Golden Globes, Gervais is in serious danger of becoming officially too cool for school. One can only hope he works up a bit more excitement for his upcoming guest shot on Curb Your Enthusiasm. Source Here
