Watch An Idiot Abroad

An Idiot Abroad is a comedy travel show first airing on Sky1 and starring Karl Pilkington, a man who first came to prominence as the producer of the XFM radio show The Ricky Gervais Show. Pilkington became well known on the show for an outlook on life heavily shaped by his complete obliviousness to many aspects of culture and a decidedly simplistic understanding of how the world works. The series hinges on the premise that Pilkington is being forced by Gervais and his writing partner Stephen Merchant to travel the world and experience other cultures and lands he would otherwise have no interest in seeing, all while the two comedians monitor his progress from back home.
