Karl takes on Super Powers on ‘The Ricky Gervais Show’

For those of you into the podcast thing, or The Office, you probably are aware of The Ricky Gervais Show podcast. In this week’s episode, #4, a listener asks Karl Pilkington what super power he would like to have, and much hilarity ensued.

The superhero section is at 14:19 in the podcast, take a listen, its worth it.

The funniest bit is listening to Karl explain how there aren’t any happy superheroes. That, and Superman’s friend Louis.


  1. The Louis bit had me laughing so hard this morning on the commute into work that the guy that I was standing over looked up at me, annoyed.

    Also, I laughed heartily at this week’s Monkey News, which never disappoints.

    The Ricky Gervais Show podcast is the only thing that makes my Monday morning commute bearable.

  2. They’re so MEAN to that dude.

  3. It has to be somewhat of a bit. I mean, no one could take that much abuse for so long, could they?

    It’s still exceptionally funny.
