    "Laugh-Out Loud Funny"

    I listened to this in the car, and laughed so loud I nearly had to pull off the road. The same thing happened when I listened to it going for a walk, and I must have looked strange bursting into laughter on the sidewalk alone. One complaint is that Karl's accent is so thick I sometimes don't get the punch lines (I am American, a British person wouldn't have a problem). And I sympathize with Karl, whereas Ricky comes off as a bully sometimes. All around it's excellent listening, and it spurred me to listen to others in the series.

    "Stupid funny!!!"

    This series of discussions makes me laugh out loud no matter where I am. I sometimes feel a little sorry for Karl, but he holds his own for the most part. While he's a little out there, I sometimes find myself thinking, wow, what an interesting way to look at things. I'm sure this series was put together to share Karl's strange take on life with the rest of the world, but I feel that Ricky sometimes forgets that. He often verbally attacks Karl for being an idiot. But Steve brings balance to the situation by insisting that he is interested to hear what Karl has to say. I love the dynamic between the three of them.

    "Not what I expected"

    I have always liked Ricky Gervais but this one did nothing for me. The only person laughing was him.
