    ITEM#: 10407252

    Karl Pilkington is a radio producer previously best known for producingThe Ricky Gervais Show on UK's Xfm radio. He has now reached an international audience through his appearances with Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant onThe Ricky Gervais Show podcast. He lives in London; this is his first book.

    Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant are long-time collaborators and are the comic geniuses behindThe Office and Extras.
    In this pithy and hilarious book, Karl Pilkington is in conversation with (the often bewildered) Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, the writers and stars ofThe Office and Extras, unwittingly outwitting even those comedy Goliaths as he struggles in vain to make sense of the world around him.

    Unencumbered by erudition and impervious to logic, Karl ambles down a heuristic path to enlightenment under the edifying influence of Ricky and Steve. His pronouncements on such diverse and contentious topics as population control, simian affairs within human society, the sartorial deliberations of solitary spacemen and how long you can stay alive with your head chopped off, are matched in the vehemence with which they are proposed only by the degree to which they are ill-conceived.

    Featuring Karl's original illustrations, imaginative scribblings and the best conversations of the world record-breaking Podcasts,The Ricky Gervais Show, this is a unique trip into the world of one of our most innovative thinkers, visionaries and prophets, or as Gervais knows him, "the funniest man I've ever met."
