    "over rated show"

    I bought this audio book based on all the great reviews. I was terribly disappointed once I started listening to it. I believe the only attractive quality of the program is that it is very cheap, which leads me to the old maxim - you get what you pay for.

    These guys just drone on and on. Nothing very clever or profound ever comes out of their mouths. Their delightful cheeky British voices make for good background banter, however I cannot stress the disappointment that befell me upon listening to this audio book.

    If you would like to laugh then get - Greg Giraldo (very crass but extremely funny) , Mitch Headberg, and Demitri Martin. These guys are very funny. With them you will not get 6 hours or mindless boredom.

    "Hilarious"

    These boys are very, very funny. If you're missing British humour in your life you ought to download it - even my mother who has a hard time understanding British accents laughed out loud.

    "The Karl Pilkington Show"

    I enjoyed this introductory season of Ricky Gervais' podcast. By the end, you're happy to hear Ricky admitting that it should be called the Karl Pilkington show as Karl ends up doing the lionshare of the talking. Karl's quite the eccentric personality.

    I don't want to give too much away, so I'm being purposely vague. It would suffice to say, however, that this season isn't really about Ricky Gervais' comedy, but instead showcases his ability to see what could be entertaining, and his ability to steer it in that direction.

    "not particularly funny"

    I've been a fan of Gervais' work and was disappointed in this offering. Sounds as if the participants had a good time but left the audience out.

    "I Don't Get It"

    As a lover of audio books, and a great fan of comedy, I really looked forward to this wildly popular program. The program is full of slapstick British humor, which was a mis-match for my American taste. Nonetheless, I found myself often scratching my head and asking "how was that funny?" after Karl Pilkington offered many of his wild ideas on life. Then, his counterparts scoff and laugh wildly like school children at his mildly humorous statements. Admittedly, there were moments where I was tickled, but overall I was disappointed.

    "Not so funny."

    Not as funny as I thought it would have been. A little boring.

    "Laugh out loud funny."

    The trio manage to take everyday topics and turn them into subjects you will roar with laughter about. Needless to say Karl is the star of the show with his off the wall thinking.

    "Karl Pilkington is the star of this!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Despite being almost a decade old this is very funny, factually stupid and a complete waste of time. A must listen!


    Would you be willing to try another book from the authors? Why or why not?

    Second series is primed, ready to be listened to soon.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Ricky can be annoying and over the top. He constantly has a go at Karl which can get on your nerves. That said he is funny. Steve acts as a referee for the most part and is equally funny. Karl for me is the star. Yes, some of the things he says are daft but then his honesty is refreshing and down to earth.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No.

    "Ricky, Karl and Steven at their finest"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This podcast collection is hilarious, filled with incredibly funny anecdotes, stories and all round Pilkington nonsense that we have all come to know and love.

    "Hillarious! Get out of a bad mood quick material!"

    What can I say but pure comedy genius?

    I love how Ricky, Steve and Karl bounce off each other with such ease and hilarity! For something to tickle me it has to be natural and every-day conversational but with major amounts of random quirk thrown in. This for me hits the perfect spot!



    If you love our greatest export - British humour, you'll love this!



    My favourite bits are when Ricky just bursts into spontaneous uncontrollable cackling laughter - its so contagious and extremely releasing in an almost healing kind of way.



    I love Steve's matter of fact comment and commentary, most of all his densely heavily intense deep dark comedy Bristolian accent! I find that so funny!



    And of course best till last - the owner of that perfectly round head, Mr. Pilkington! Karl is the funny for being himself and not even trying. For my money that's pure comedy genius!

    "Hi-larious"

    I've been a fan of these three since their XFM days. The trouble with listening to this at work, is that it will make me laugh out loud (literally), which gets me some odd looks from co-workers. I really like the chemistry and banter between these three.
