very enjoyable

I only wish Ricky Gervais would let Karl finish his idea. Steve M. always asks him to stop, he just never does... Still, funny.

Quality On The Decrease

The long and the short of this is: While still enjoyable to listen to it's not what it originally was. It has essentially devolved into Ricky and Steve egging Karl on rather than just having him be part of the conversation.

Hysterical!!!

I love these guys! This episode is so funny. I listen to all their stuff every so often when I need a good laugh. This one still makes laugh like the first time I heard it. Lol to Carl's wish to be called "Brett". I crack up every time!

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.

    3 out of 5 stars

Intelectual yet goofy

Just what you would expect. It's worth a short listen, a laugh or two, and a buck.
