Need a laugh? Here is my short list of a few people on the internet who are bound to produce a chuckle or two.
Ricky Gervais and Karl Pilkington
I remember watching “Learn English, with Ricky Gervais” for the first time a few years ago and I have never laughed so hard in my life. The way Karl takes the lessons seriously while it is clear the video is created for comedic purposes is brilliant. The way he focuses on Chinese people instead of all people hoping to learn English is hilarious. Ricky Gervais and Karl Pilkington are a fantastic duo, like Batman and Robin, except they fight against boredom with their humor.

Go check out the HBO Ricky Gervais podcasts, where he, Karl Pilkington and Steve Merchant discuss a wide variety of topics. Each topic includes Karl saying things that you would not believe, his brilliance is unmatched. One of Karl’s brilliant ideas is to shoot trash up into space because he thinks the current space exploration is pointless. In addition to these podcasts, they also dedicate an episode to reading the diary of Karl Pilkington, which is chuck full of great anecdotes and good for many laughs.
