Default Hilarious Show ( IMO )

Hi All,
Saint this is the show I was referring to earlier...

I know I am late in the game with the comedy of Ricky Gervais ( original creator of The Office, Extras , Ricky Gervais Show)
great move: The Invention of Lying

Anyway, his new show on the Science channel is "An Idiot Abroad"
The premise is that Ricky and his friend Steven Merchant ( who love to travel, very open minded, worldly ) send their other friend Karl who is a very narrow minded, moronic but has a good heart and has never traveled out of Great Britain to the Wonders of the World, i.e. Pyramids, Machu Pichu, Great Wall of China, Christ the Redeemer in Rio ( he refers to that as the Big Jesus Thing ) - Ricky further torments Karl by making him stay in the most uninhabitable lodging in every place and sending him on bizarre side trips. Just the The remarks that Karl comes up with and his response to seeing new cultures is astounding and even though he seems idiotic , he also comes up with genius remarks /observations

just imo- is by far one of the funniest shows I have seen in a long time.

: )

Carly,

Watched two shows, #8, & #9. Certainly good for a few laughs. Karl says he's not coming back for season 2. Hope to see more of him though, certainly has a dry, caustic wit that I find extremely funny at times. The accent certainly helps also lol.

Thanks for the laughs!

I just thought it was so funny and wanted to share .
The Ricky Gervais Show on HBO is similar - Ricky, Karl and Stephen are Animated and they ask Karl his opinions on things like Darwin's theories, aliens and what the future will be like.
Now that I am on the west coast, it is on late at night so after 4 hours of homework, cooking, cleaning and getting the NOT so young one settled in , I need some hilarity ! Esp of late - some family has come to visit and not that That is ever stressful ; )

Hope Karl does return for a second go round !

Carly,

If there's one thing I dislike it's moving! Can't imagine moving such a distance. Certainly a lot of work. Hope things are working out for you and the family in the new place. Take care of yourself!!
