@ricktgervais says Karl Pilkington is 100% real, not an act.
If so, does that make him an absolute moron (As Ricky and Steve like to joke) or a brilliant, yet simple man?
Oh give me a break. Could there be anybody who was more obviously modeled his career on the talents of the prodigious Mr. Martin Short? Except of course that Mr. Pilkington has never translated his most popular character into animated format, except for those instances in which he has, that is.
