I have an IQ of 83 and no skills.
I am a millionaire by pure luck.
I don't even have the brains to appreciate that.
This is Karl's only real fault. Still slightly fascist despite having a career he never pursued.
>Sky 1 deal for two seasons of show
>gets royalties from his, Ricky and Stevens production company that do all Karl's shows and billed as executive producer on them all.
>Royalties from Ricky Gervais show, DVDs etc. As well as his own.
>money from his multiple books
>Turns out they've got this uh... John Boyega to play a stormtrooper or sum'in--
>Right, go on...
>I 'eard his name though and thought... 'ang on. So I looked it up on me phone, ya know, cause I browse it sometimes sorta' mindlessly. Turns out: Little nigger fella. Abrams sez he's there for quotas an' that.
>No, alright, don't talk shit, you're full of shit.
>No I looked it up, it's real! Why are you doubtin' me? You're always doubtin' me, look I'll show you, here he is-
>HAHAHAHAH KARL YOU MANC TWAT THAT'S A FUCKING GORILLA, WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU WHY WOULD YOU EVER THINK THAT'D BE A MAIN CHARACTER IN A MOVIE? OOOOOOOOOOOHH GOD...
Apparently... right... there's this channel on the internet.
>I think you misunderstood something.
No, really, it's, there's a channel 4 on the internet. They have kids, and television, and animals.
>Is this a monkey news? Should we play the-- play the intro, do it.
>AWWWWWW CHIMPANZEE THAT HE'S GONE AND WRITTEN IT DOWN
Alright? They show this bloke, from the batman films, and he's knockin' about on a plane... and they say he's a big guy. I think he sounds like... he sounds like the guy who played James Bond.
Now I wouldn't say he's a big guy, I'm probably... I would say I'm probably the same size as him.
>Do you have any idea what he's talking about?
>I've no idea what he's on about. A plane in the batman film? Do you mean the third one, with Tom Hardy?
Yeah, he's got a mask on, and he's--
>Karl, what the fuck are you on about, there's a channel on the internet that shows Tom Hardy on the plane in Batman over and over?
>That's a good movie.
>I thought it was shit.
They say he's a big guy. And then it's, for you.
For... for you.
>Don't talk shit, Karl. I swear to god that was the most useless waste of time we've ever had on this show.
I've only recently gotten into this guy's work.
I watched An Idiot Abroad about a year ago, but just recently started on the podcasts and they're a fucking treat.
I'm also listening to the XFM shows while idly playing vidya.
Is there anything else he's done I should know about?
is this guy for real?
He reminds me a lot of a guy I saw in some movie, what was that...
heard u were talking shit about me like i wouldnt find out
MFW my mates say i look like Karl and i've got a head like a fucking orange
>it's a Karl sees auntie Nora's fanny under her kaftan episode
It's a shame these three don't do anything together anymore, I guess Ricky's head finally found its way all the way up his arse and can't get out.
The very early XFM shows are the best without a doubt, when they didn't repeat the same opinions over and over.
Does Karl ever actually have sex, I can't imagine it. Does Suzanne even exist, how the fuck could a man like Karl ever agree to a relationship or show affection?
FUCK YES! A Karl Pilkington Thread!
Post your rare Pilkingtons.
They Fell Asleep?, ive always been shit at this..
he did say on a podcast, one time is enough. "get it out the way, it's nowt special" or something about when in a relationship. he probably enjoys a cheeky blow job.
>not watching karl in krystal-klear 1080p
>it's a karl can't be doin' with robin and his tiny thumbs episode
The guy's still done quite well for himself, even if it's like winning the lottery for idiots.
Imagine RoonRoon or TayTay being chased around with a stick or being forced to stay in the most ghetto/extreme culture clashing shitty hotels. He literally stayed in a cave, and I don't think that was even the worst.
It really is funny, though. He's a special kind of idiot that just happens to say/do the funniest things, and reacts in absurd and hilarious ways.
I didn't even try it until late last year because I've never really liked Ricky. I think I caught a rerun late at night and ended up marathoning the whole series like a goddamn basement dweller.
It's private. They're all on IPT which is the easiest private tracker to get into.
>Ricky: Oh, the other night, right, he’s got a thing about Robin, my mate Robin, right, who’s a lovely bloke, right, he’s going “I,I can’t be handling him he talks too much, he talks…”. You know Robin sort of goes bleleerrrerrrrrrrrrerrrrrr and he talks really fast and he’s, he’s sort of riffing all the time and that, goes “It does me head in. Why’s he talking like that?” And, um, er, I said, er, Karl’s out for a drink, I went er, he went “Robin’s not going to be there is he?” I went “No.” And I was there with erm, Johnny and um, I’d set him up, I knew Robin was going to be there. Robin comes in, sits down and goes “Hi.”; I go “Alright?” Karl goes “Right I’m going.” And I, Robin sort of looks at him, I went “Oh, don’t be stupid”, he went “No.”, and this is in front of Robin, who’s confused, Karl goes, points at him, put finger, goes “I said was he gonna be here, er, you know I don’t like him.”
>it's a bloke shits himself on the train platform, goes into a shop asks for an unspecified product in an unspecified size, gets on a train, throws his shitty trousers out of the window, opens the shopping bag and ITS A JACKET episode
By this episode (22), the levels are a bit better, but yeah early on they're terrible. I always wondered if anyone with any audio expertise to remaster them a bit (just limiting, compression, and bit of eq) to make them sound a bit more coherent. Even the podcasts are bad at points. Really a tin-pot operation they had.
