Publisher's Summary

Join Ricky Gervais, Steve Merchant and the glabrous luminary Karl Pilkington for a series of in-depth discussions from the human body to the arts. Ponder along with the comedians as they debate the important things in life and society, from the controversial to the everyday. 

As always, in the midst of taking stances on issues as wide ranging as capital punishment and natural remedies, both Ricky and Steve take the opportunity to draw out Karl's often nonchalant and superficial take on the subjects leading to hilarious tangents. An amusing opportunity to explore fascinating topics.

I felt myself getting stupider listening to this

gave up after 1.5 chapters. only funny if you like character-based comedy with a verbally and mentally challenged karl making ignorant pronouncements with no follow through, while ricky laughs like a hyena

Hilarious

Laughed the whole way through it, especially thanks to Ricky's infectious laugh. Can't get enough of these 3. Would definitely recommend.

Ricky Gervais being an asshole

struggled to get past the five minute mark. Ricky shows total lack of conscientiousness. Taking the piss out of Karl and his responses. Somehow Ricky probably thinks it's okay because he is paying Karl. It's arrogant, rich, ruling class personified, though worse, because Ricky is 'the pot calling the kettle black' here. Just an old, Fat, unaccomplished- lucky streak comedian.

A sit down with three unique geniuses

The discussions are raw, natural and spontaneous. The presenters feed off each other impeccably and it’s just overwhelmingly hilarious. A great one to listen to while u’re doing something boring, and an insight look into the minds of three of the great comedic minds; an th er views on hot topics

Fun for Ricky but not for listeners

A few blokes having a chat over a beer. It might have been fun for them but didn't do anything for me.

Very Funny But...

... the part during the last episode where Karl is explaining about when he bought his flat in Manchester is the funniest thing I've ever heard in my 40 journeys around the sun. I laughed so hard I thought my teeth would come out, this was on a very very full train at 7.15am

Very funny and educational

Light and full of good laughs. I’d love to have more from these three or new content. Not a segment without a personal moment of thought or interest.

Alot of bad language

I like these guys, although there was alot of unnecessary bad language. I listen on a speaker and my customers could hear.

I laughed throughout. Brilliant!

it's not often I laugh out loud as much as this. Brilliant. So funny. Dry 'nirmal' humour. Hilarious slant in life. Ricky's laugh itself makes me laugh. I had to get past the F ' ing a bit and the boys stories of Vick and balls were so immature it was ridiculously funny. This will cure all those feeling depressed for good.
