made all the better by ricky gervais' laughs, yes or no?
it's very well done. If ricky gervais didn't provide a laugh track nobody would know how to react to pilkington.
he did a radio show with russell brand but russell didn't laugh in his face, so it was less funny
after ATP we were ina shop and he was on the radio and i was thinking, this is no where near as good as when Gervais was quacking away in the background.
how he tried too hard to be a bit dumb in the end, whereas before he genuinely was and it was kinda charming, theres a bit on the radio show where he asks what the things in Gremlins were called, but its obvious he doesn't know, then to the end of the podcasts it was a bit ridiculos
I'm listening to him at the moment talking about spider island
if it wasn't for gervais shrieking and cackling over the top it'd be so much less funny
the best bits are: his first poem reading because the whole episode is about insects and Ricky just like 'fuck off' by the end
Mr. K. Dilkington
the bit where hes on about using eyes when sleeping on the Podfather
some Rockbusters bits
Whilst it is true Ricky's laughing makes the whole thing all the more contagious, man can it hurt your ears on headphones somethings. You think it' at a nice normal level and then this Gervais shriek pierces your eardrums.
you can hear him fall off his chair
its also ace when Karl goes to Cotswolds and is like 'we went for a walk around the carpark'
and the first time they find he is writing a diary
Gervais and Merchant are really good at getting the funny stuff out of him by asking the right questions and egging him on as well.
was either the one with the monkey in a lab where they say he dresses up as a nurse
or where its a chimp chat show with Cher
