Everyone’s favourite idiot abroad is back with a new television show and we can’t wait.
Karl Pilkington is returning to our screens with a show created by the team behind An Idiot Abroad and The Moaning Of Life.
Sick of It is Karl’s first ever scripted comedy show and the concept sounds hilarious.

The show follows Karl as he muddles through the mundane life he may have led if he had not met Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant.
Taking on two roles in the show, Karl plays both himself and the voice inside his head attempting to make sense of the modern world.
We have been promised that the voice inside Karl’s head is ‘the uncensored true version of Karl that says what he really thinks without the risk of offending others’ so who knows what he will come out with.
In a statement Karl said:
For most people the inner self is there to help make decisions but mine mainly confuses me and pushes me in the wrong direction.
I’d say that doing this series was inner self’s idea. I’ve only just realised that I’m playing myself twice but only being paid once. Like I say, my inner self doesn’t really look out for me.
It is going to be interesting seeing Karl work on a scripted show but we are sure it’s going to have us in tears.
Sick Of It will air on Sky 1 in the 10pm slot soon.
