Karl Pilkington's alter ego falls into existential despair when Aunt Norma replaces him with a young, go-getting care worker called Ruby. Can a biscuit binge help? Or a change of direction into the world of chauffeuring? It might bring him enough money to move out of Norma's flat for good.

I talk Sick Of It (Series 2)

Sick Of It balances humour and heart brilliantly, delivering big laughs alongside moments of real poignancy.

TV review: Sick Of It, Sky One

I've read that Karl Pilkington has said that Sick Of It is "not meant to be that funny", but I'm more than happy to review it on this comedy website. It's a lot funnier than a lot of television shows that bill themselves as comedies.

Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke, 10th January 2020
