    This is one of the funniest shows I have seen in a while. My wife and I were on the floor crying laughing so much.

  • The truth

    By NESfan000
    A smart show that reveals the truth of traveling abroad while being hilarious
  • Hilarious!!

    By givitachance
    This show is so good! Ricky Gervais and Steven Merchant send their clueless friend to China, India, and other parts of the world to experience other cultures and interact with the locals. The results are just too funny. It's also a great way to see how other people live in other parts of the world.
  • I need more!! 😩

    By JillianRae
    Seriously ingenious! I would love to just sit and listen to Karl talk. His reasoning on everything is spot on. I don't know how he does it without cracking a smile!

  • great show no censors

    By Monkeyball pro

  • A Cure for the Blues

    By LizzieFldCT
    I honestly feel that Karl's perspectives on his experiences are refreshing, enjoyable and consistently genuine. Whoever his seven mates are should count themselves as lucky for his unique take on life. Thank you Ricky, Steven and Karl!
