Karl Pilkington has featured in many Ricky Gervais projects, but this one is all his own.
Sick Of It is a comedy-drama series created and written by Karl Pilkington and Richard Yee (who also directs the series).
To date (2020) there have been twelve episodes and two series.
The series takes place around Ladbroke Grove in London. Karl is a bored taxi driver who has been dumped by his girlfriend Zoe. As he strugles to get his life back on track he moves in with his elderly American aunt Norma.
His closet friend becomes the voice inside his head: a sardonic, outspoken alter ego that takes the form of his double – it’s the uncensored true version of Karl that says what he really thinks without the risk of offending others.
As Karl attempts to move on from the break up and sort out his life, the voice in his head appears periodically to guide, criticise and dispense his unorthodox philosophy of life.
