Check Out the Full 23-Minute Preview of Ricky Gervais’ An Idiot Abroad


Here’s a full 23-minute preview of Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant and Karl Pilkington’s An Idiot Abroad, which is coming to Britain’s Sky1 this fall and presumably the States at some point. If you listened to Gervais and Merchant’s podcasts or watched the animated HBO show based on them, you’re familiar with Karl Pilkington; he’s essentially their whipping boy who they make fun of and humiliate relentlessly, with hilarious results. So of course, a show based on sending the awkward, bitter guy around the world to suffer for our enjoyment can’t really go wrong. Hit the jump for the second half of the preview.
