The little round-headed twonk Karl Pilkington returns to our (computer) screen in twelve days, and this time, he’s teaching English. Wait…what? From Ricky Gervais’ blog:
I also finished editing the pilot episode of our new internet project. It will be called “Learn English with Ricky Gervais” and it’s turned out great.
We hope to have it subtitled into as many languages as possible.
I’m going to put out the first one free as a taster then work out the best way to distribute. Might charge a small fee or get it sponsored. Unlike the audio podcasts this actually costs quite a bit to make, but even if we charge it will still only be a couple of quid.
I’m thinking of making a clean version of the pilot available for download so people can put their own subtitles on it and repost it. You can do a Klingon version if you want. Interactive…so…
Check out the trailer below.
If you can’t wait for this, and you haven’t seen it before, I strongly recommend that you go out and buy Pilkington’s recent travel show ‘An Idiot Abroad‘. It is truly a thing of genius.
