The former butt of Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant's jokes has gone on to make his own mark in this series of travel documentaries which sees him getting to grips with different cultures around the world. The first episode of this new series sees Karl in Mexico, where he joins members of a tribe who enjoy running ultra-marathons and meets a group that finds pleasure in pain. He then heads of to LA where hangs out with some hip-hop clowns, experiences a day of beauty with a plastic-surgery addict and gives up his possessions to see if the simple life is the answer to contentment. All of course with a healthy dose of Karl Pilkington style moaning along the way.
