The Ricky Gervais Show: Cloning
  • Stephen Merchant:Now Karl i know you are fascinated by the concept of a doppelganger, seeing someone who looks exactly like you. Jake has emailed in and he says "if you could spend with an exact replica of you somehow theyve cloned you karl, what would you do? how would you utilize him for one day
  • Ricky Gervais:Well they'd both say "I'm not bothered" and that would be the end of conversation
  • Karl Pilkington:what would do me head in is, does he think the same way as me?
  • Stephen Merchant:Yes
  • Karl Pilkington:How would i know which one i was?
The Heaven and Hell Conundrum

Ricky poses a question to Karl:  2 angels are guarding 2 doors.  1 goes to Heaven, 1 goes to Hell.  1 of the angels will only tell the truth and will only tell lies.  If you could only ask one question (addressing both of them at the same time), how do you find out which door they are guarding?

Karl: I can’t just sort of have a feel for the door, to see if there’s any heat?

Then Karl asks if he can look through the keyhole.  Then he wonders how 2 completely different characters could get along:

Karl: Would they be neighbors, would they be that close?

Karl finally comes up with an answer:

Karl: Got some post for God here and it needs to be signed.  Is God in?

Ricky says they would both answer Yes to the question (one of course is lying).

Karl: Look lads, I’m just trying to do a job here.  What am I gonna do with this?

**Of course that’s not the correct answer, so you’ll just have to listen to the audiobook to find out…


Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, resting on their laurels.

Put that right in the fuckin’ bin, pieceofplasticbollocks.
