Sick of It review

Karl Pilkington's new comedy is more melancholy meditation than shaggy dog stories.

Sick of It, review

Karl Pilkington stars opposite himself in his new sitcom that mostly hits the mark.

Coran Elliott, The Telegraph, 27th September 2018

Karl Pilkington's new sitcom refuses to work for its laughs, or its pathos. He plays Karl, a newly and unhappily single cabbie whose implausible fecklessness, in a world full of monstrous chancers, creates farcical situations from nothing. He also plays Karl's more forthright inner monologue as a separate character, which is a way to crowbar in Pilkington's trademark observational rants. But, in a scripted comedy that aims for bittersweetness, simply spelling out what pains the protagonist is another easy shortcut.
