Ricky Gervais ploughs through more records
Ricky Gervais and Steven Merchant, loyally supported by token oddity Karl Pilkington, have now had their phenomenally popular podcast downloaded over 150 million times. Considering that they were the first ever people to try charging for the internet-only show, one can only assume that they must be totally rolling in it.
It should warm the hearts of man that a show beyond the reach of the censors’ red markers should prove so popular, with material that’s not exactly kosher pulling in millions of listeners, particularly in the wake of the hyperbolically named “Sachsgate”.
In other news, Karl Pilkington has recently met David Shrigley and drew a picture. Find it here.
