Download your complimentary podcast of The Ricky Gervais Show
"The best animation I have ever seen" – Seth Macfarlane, creator of Family Guy
Wednesday 09 June 2010
After the success of the TV series’ The Office and Extras, Ricky Gervais, his long-time collaborator Stephen Merchant and sidekick Karl Pilkington muse over the random and the ridiculous in the animated series of The Ricky Gervais Show.
The net is cast far and wide as they trawl through topics as diverse as the merits of 20th century invention, population control, the evolution of philosophy and charity, as well as a regular ‘Monkey News’ segment and excerpts from Karl’s diary.
The original podcasts have become such a world-wide success that they’ve earned a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records for the most downloads.
