Karl Pilkington has led an extraordinary and curiously individual life. As a kid growing up in Manchester, he regularly missed school to accompany his parents on caravanning holidays and left without collecting his exam results. Now making up for lost time, Karl's thirst for knowledge is sated by that most reliable fountain of wisdom - the internet - and regulated by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant's diligent, if ruthless, appraisals of his new-found theories and beliefs. Because of them, he is the reluctant star of the hit Sky TV series 'An Idiot Abroad' and author of the accompanying books, as well as 'Karlology' and 'Happyslapped by a Jellyfish'.
