guardian podcasts are really damned funny
but pretty much watever Ricky Gervais does is pretty damn funny.
doing his thing ... so you know what to expect
karl is the star of the show
although Karl steals the show, like in the first one when he told that story about the mansion and the list and the baby being dead.
3 - 6 :-(
karl is brilliant though, utterly incredible stream of nonsense
On the extras there is an interview with Karl Pilkington.
It is absolutely hilarious!
karl's alleged stupidity fuel the show. Its very entertaining.
you can listen to the original Xfm shows here, possibly the funniest thing ever
basic formula: discuss something a bit ridiculous, get karl to make an opinion on it, spend five minutes taking the piss out of him and laughing like a hyena.
ricky's had better days.
Just saw his animals show, was in E4 a while back and had sky +ed it. It is very very funny.
Downloading the guardian podcasts now.
He is very very entertaining
it's amusing, but like you say it's the same old formula they've been using since XFM days.
they are genius and very funny. agree again that karl's the star of the the show. the bit about the bucket with the face painted on it! haha!
bus are funner than this grossly overratedman
All tehy do is get Karl to say stupid things and then Gervais squeals at him. Like they've been doing on XFM and The Office for the past X number of years.
have to have a 'posse' on the radio or a sidekick - are these people not naturally funny enough - they are there to play records - they are disco jockeys not stand-ups - gervais is hated on the 'circuit' as well for not 'paying his dues' - I prefer monologues anyway -very few people are actually funny on the radio - Jarvis Cocker got cloes to in on 6Music but really that was it. And oh COMEDY Dave. Has anyone electrocuted him yet?
fat head split open by his stupid mouth laughing - his head looks for all the world like an arrogant potato tha thas a reputation for smarm. In other words, a cunt.
because that isn't a character, that's actually just him.
you slightly here Prole. Gervais is on XFM at the weekend, and if I were listening to the radio then, I would want relaxing light-hearted banter (I don't care how dadrock or dido-friendly that quote sounds) and Gervais provides it. Having a 'posse' means that they can have a laugh with one another, and have a joke. If it were just him, it would be tediously boring and he'd be resorting to reading 'comedy' stories form the 'papers. Which is the worst way to fill space on the 'airwaves' ever invented.
makes me laugh, I don't care if he's a prick.
not a prick, I'm a cunt.
When he was 'non-ironically' plugging his DVD.
actaully it got shit when he pretended that someone in the crowd said "do the dance" and he was like "OH! who said that eh? who said do the dance? you rotter! well alright then..."
"everyone i just got news that george bush phoned and as agreed to cancel the whole debt, so we can all go home!"
joke got absolutly no responce, yet it was the best part of the whole day.
bamo but at the same time he can just play music and shut the fuck up for five minutes. If I was uglier and more petty minded I would count the minutes 'wasted' to his stupid voice (its the vocal eqiuvalent of the exasperation of a wasp hassling your fizzy drink in a beer garden) Mind you the relief of hearing a record is only momentary as its usually 'Buck Rogers','Teenage Dirtbag', or 'Killed by Death'*

If I have children and I ever catch them emulating that I will throw thme out onto the street. Wearing Marcofeela masks of course.
This man has run his course. Not literally, otherwise he wouldn't resemble a 'brushed up' 8Ace* now would he?
