An Idiot Abroad: Karl Comes Home

Now back in Britain after his “seven wonders” trips, Karl sits down with Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant to discuss the experience.

Stephen is confused by Karl’s seemingly contradictory statements about not wanting to miss the many sights and sounds on his travels, but also being overly annoyed by them.

Many of the situations Karl experienced he classifies as false fun, which he does not like in principle and he tells them about what he thinks he’s learned from these travels.

Despite Karl’s assertions that he won’t do another, they talk concepts for a second series and Karl gives his thoughts on his general impression of the world.

An Idiot Abroad: Karl Comes Home (Series 1, episode 8) is scheduled for broadcast this Sunday night (25 October) at 19:00 on BBC BRIT (DStv channel 120) with a repeat showing on Monday, 26 October at 22:00.
