Although he is best known as the main subject of Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant's comedic social experiment An Idiot Abroad,Karl Pilkington is no average idiot. Pilkington is like a fountain of unfiltered wisdom, but the sort of wisdom that the brain of an imaginative child would conjure. In that sense, he's sort of a misunderstood genius.
If you love wanderlust shows, nature documentaries and vérité-style adventure television, An Idiot Abroad probably isn't for you. But if watching a buffoon clumsily whine his way through magnificent parts of the world sounds hilarious, you should really check out the series. Whether you're intrigued by the sound of this wise idiot or you're already Karl Pilkington's number one fan, you're sure to get a kick out of some of these priceless quotes from the man himself.
