An Idiot Abroad premieres on TV3

9:30pm – Thursday, February 10 on TV 3

From the creators of the worldwide hits The Office and Extras, co-stars and executive producers Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant present this ambitious epic travelogue series starring Karl Pilkington. An Idiot Abroad premieres on Thursday, February 10th at 9:30pm on 3.

Ricky and Stephen are outraged that Karl has written off the Seven Wonders claiming they’re all “a bit s**t” having never seen any of them with his own eyes.

They’ve thrown down the gauntlet to send him around the globe to force him out of his comfort zone. Stephen wants the experience to broaden Karl’s mind and change his outlook on the world, while Ricky simply wants Karl to hate every minute of it for his own amusement.

Leading up to his departure in this week’s season opener, Karl’s said: “I can’t wait to get started. Not ‘cos I’m excited but ‘cos the sooner we start the sooner it will be over.”

“The fact the nurse gave me an injection that protects me from dirty chimps put a dampener on the whole thing. I don’t think Ross Kemp has to have that injection.”

That’s probably because of Ricky and Stephen’s plan that, Karl will see more action in one week of his travels than Ross Kemp did over his whole season!

Find out just what Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant have in store for Karl Pilkington when An Idiot Abroad premieres on Thursday, February 10th at 9:30pm on 3.
