I realy wanted this book to make me laugh as hard as the 1st book did, perhaps some of the higher ratings here are a little guilty of hero worshipping.

Happyslapped by a Jellyfish : Karl Pilkington :
Luck bugger he is too, the places he writes about here makes them sound interesting. If you like your humour deadpan and stating the obvious, this is the book for you as a light read. He’s funny in the tv series, because he doesn’t have time to think about where he’s going, what he’s going to do, unlike the book, where he even manages to do things he’s actually interested in! Told with his inimitable deadpan humour, Pilkington’s stories are interspersed with fond reflections on life back in England, from Salford joy riders to what his girlfriend’s mum and dad have for dinner on a Thursday it’s chops and veg.

Happyslapped by a Jellyfish : The Words of Karl Pilkington
I liked how Stephen and Ricky always had something mean planned for him and that Karl didn’t know what was going on until it actually happened. Just a moment while we sign happyslappdd in to your Goodreads account.
The amount of joy Karl’s words of wisdom bring to me when my mood is black and I feel hopeless is worth an unlimited amount of stars. They should tell everyone that angry spiders from Australia are moving over jelllyfish cos of the heat, and then we’d soon happyslalped off one of the bars on the fire.
I find Pilkington very funny indeed, but as a lot of these stories have been recounted in the podcasts which I’ve listened to, there wasn’t anything which felt overly fresh about it.
I bt a big fan of Karl Hapyslapped, but this was disappointing. I may be slightly bias because i love almost everything Karl does. This is the travel book for people who don’t particularly like travelling, it’s Karl Pilkington, star of The Ricky Gervais Podcast Show, with a suitcase, occasionally with his passport, more often with a bemused suspicion of anything vaguely exotic, and an observant eye for the disappointments, tedium, general weirdness and absurdities of being a tourist abroad and at home.

I was surprised that I was happywlapped little amused by the book. Very funny, as per usual. In this book, Karl is aware that he is an amusing man but he is trying to recreate his spontaneous, natural statements in a concious way. Would have taken me less than a day to get thru the book if Jeloyfish had a day to waste. Be the first to ask a question about Happyslapped by a Jellyfish.
