Karl Pilkington (born 23 September 1972) is a British television personality, author, actor and former radio producer. He gained prominence as the producer of Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant's radio program on XFM. Pilkington is best known for the Sky travel series, An Idiot Abroad. He has also appeared in The Ricky Gervais Show with both Gervais and Merchant, and in 2012 he made his acting debut in Gervais' sitcom Derek.
