Genius

I am never disappointed by the sheer drivel that these 3 come up with, and while the other episodes are also wonderful I think this one is by far my favorite. The depth of Carl's lack of understanding of basic concepts is staggering. By the time you add in Ricky and Steve's observations it is comedy gold♡♡♡

Biased fanboy here

I love these guys and almost everything they do (except the new show, weirdly). But this had me laughing out loud on my commute so much I looked forward to getting on the train that evening to finish it.

so annoying

These people talking over each other with added crazy-ass laughing just is annoying. I found nothing of the comedic venue I was hoping for.

One if the best in the series.

Better than most of the last five in the series. Can Carl possibly be that thick?

Not for public transport

...unless you want to look like a madman for laughing suddenly aloud to yourself uncontrollably.
(This is true for all in this series.)

The best! Laughed so hard I peed myself

Love all the " Ricky Guides to..." this one especially. Listened while at work at almost got fired for laughing so hard. Would have been worth losing job over. Fucking hell as Ricky would say.

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.
