Karl Pilkington: A Day In The Life

Ricky Gervais and Steve Merchant returned to XFM, the alternative London-based radio station in September 2001 after the first series of The Office had been broadcast. Due to the phenomenal success of the show, Ricky was important enough to now be given his own producer, one Karl Pilkington. Although Karl was hired to just "press the buttons", Ricky and Steve got him involved more and more with the show over the subsequent weeks and soon became fascinated with his personal life, unconventional childhood and ridiculous stories. By the end of the first season Karl had become a crucial part of the show's success.


In October 2010, Ricky, Steve and Karl recorded a podcast as a thank you for the fans' support during the previous year. The show featured Ricky and Steve quizzing Karl on a typical day in his life, most of which involved doing DIY around the house.
