A collection of the best moments from the 'Ricky Gervais Show' podcasts -- the world's number one podcast -- with additional musings and original drawings by Karl Pilkington, the show's unlikely star. Karl Pilkington, the Confucian like savant of the Ricky Gervais Podcast show, has led an extraordinary and curiously individual life. As a kid growing up in Manchester he regularly missed school to accompany his parents on caravanning holidays and left without collecting his exam results: his family weaned him well. His father once crashed a train into Manchester Central Station, his mother shaved one of their cats after it kept being sick and his uncle slept in a dinghy instead of a bed -- genes, some acolytes say, which have contributed to his cryptic views on life. Pilkington's is a brilliant mind, locked inside a perfectly round head, and uncluttered by the unhelpful constraints of logic or common sense; factors that have lead him to such dazzling insights as 'you never see old men eating Twix bars' or that the 'Diary of Anne Frank' was 'an Adrian Mole sort of thing'.In this pithy and hilarious book, Karl is in conversation with (the often bewildered) Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, the writers and stars of 'The Office' and 'Extras', outwitting even these comedy Goliaths with his take on such contentious issues as charity, the lack of Chinese homeless people, reincarnation, the rights of monkeys and favourite superpowers.Featuring Karl's original illustrations, imaginative scribblings and the best conversations of the first twelve podcasts, this is a unique trip into the world of one of our most innovative thinkers, visionaries and prophets, or as Gervais and Merchant know him, 'the funniest man alive in Britain today'.

His actual book is called Happyslapped By A Jellyfish and I wish it was this price, it's always really expensive!

The real "idiots" are the ones who think he is stupid ! He cracks me up but how he keeps a straight face is beyond me . It's all an act and he is a fantastic performer . There is definitely a lot of himself in the character he portrays but its hammed up to the max .
I used to love listening to his brilliant ideas on the podcasts , it really was his show and the other two are just peripheral southerners .

Miner willy you couldn't be more wrong. Just listen to his old radio shows where he barely spoke. Plus you can go ask people on pilkipedia who've met him

Ive met many who agree with you but the other half see him for the fantastic and intelligent straight faced comedian he really is (in my opinion!) . Its one of lifes great debates !
At end of the day though we are all in agreement about one thing and that is that he is brilliant !

Read this.
It's okay, but is basically just series one transcripts, with a couple of pictures.
Just finished Happyslapped by a Jellyfish, which is better - still contains stuff you've heard before

Yeh you need to keep this in mind. I originally got this book free with flanimals years ago and its what got me onto Karl in the first place. Good starting point if youve never heard of the round headed ****!

Cheers OP

Head like a ***ing orange!
