The Adventures of Mr. Pilkington…

Looking forward to the 4th episode of ‘An Idiot Abroad’ this Thursday with bald grumpy mancunian Karl Pilkington, star of the Ricky Gervais podcasts and guides. If you havent seen the programme its a sort of Michael Palin Around the world in 80 days but features Mr. Pilkington visiting the 7 wonders of the world, with each episode documenting Karl on his journey to each of the 7 wonders. Karl is basically an empty headed bald mancunian who likes to speaks his mind and is not impressed very easily by anything. So quintessentially British and many times on the programme spouts out what would be considered racial taboos and social faux pas in today’s P.C. society, but does so without the slightest ounce of cynicism or nastiness. As Ricky Gervais puts it ‘Karl is the funniest, baldest, grumpiest Manc twat in the world’. I have to agree…. Been searching Youtube for more videos of Karl and stumbled upon some deleted scenes from ‘An Idiot Abroad’ which im guessing will be released on the DVD at some point. In this one the chinese bus driver is tucking into some noodles and chicken’s feet and Karl is left a bit confused…
