Publisher Description

Here are three special episodes of
The Ricky Gervais Show, featuring those doyens of the medium, the eponymous multi-award winning Ricky Gervais; Steve Merchant (
The Office,
Extras); and the round-headed idiot savant, Karl Pilkington.

Part I: Halloween
Ghostly drivel abounds as Steve consults an SMS-based oracle, Karl experiences a kidney probing, Steve visits Bristol, Karl becomes a Godfather, and Ricky tells of some lighter moments at the morgue. (Includes a CD-giveaway contest that has already expired - sorry!)

Part II: Thanksgiving
Karl is unfamiliar with the American public holiday mentioned in the show's title and launches a campaign for a calendar-free society. Ricky explains the origins of Thanksgiving, prompting him to ask Karl who might be a good choice for a present-day pilgrim father. Steve brings up the sterling work mice are carrying out in the name of medicine. Karl's hypochondria comes to the fore as he describes a recent visit to a leg-rubber who prescribes a toe-based soporific. More readings from Karl's diary; UFOs; the will to live; Madeira cake; Relative merits of gay and heterosexual men's pornographic magazines; Oxfam's extended product lines; and Karl is concerned about the shortage of new sounds. Plus there's a (now defunct, obviously) competition to win copies of Karl's book and the new CD box set.

Part III - Christmas
Karl reflects on the year past and singles out an unlikely highlight; Steve stocks up on yuletide essentials; Karl advocates an anarchic Christmas and complains about his domestic chores; Karl's diary draws to a close with revelations of bothersome footwear, cravat-luggage, not-so-current affairs, bees, beds, and worry-holes; and Ricky provides an emotional exit en route to the orphanage.

It's ok, no better or worse than any of the other gervais podcasts

Rickophis ,

Emabarrassing and Cringe-worthy laugh-fest.

Here's another Podcast that has you looking like a weirdo walking down the road as you can't help but laugh out loud to Karls ramblings and thoughts. Comments that make you stop and think in your head and then burst out laughing with confusion. This is different to the other audiobooks Ricky has out as it based around the themes of Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. I say based, because Ricky and Steve start off talking about the holidays and their meanings, and before you know it, Karl has changed the whole conversation into something totally different. I highly recommend the Podfather triology, you'll be looking for reasons to listen to your iPod.
