Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant are sending comedian Karl Pilkington around the globe for a few good laughs in a new series on Sky1, An Idiot Abroad.

Claiming they are “fed up” with Karl Pilkington after his lack of interest and appreciation for the Seven Wonders of the World, Gervais and Merchant have opted to send Pilkington to each of the sites to see if it will broaden his horizons.  (They also want to laugh as he suffers through the hardships of travelling).  Pilkington will visit The Great Wall of China, Christ the Redeemer in Brazil, Petra in Jordan, Machu Picchu in Peru, Chichen Itza in Mexico, the Taj Mahal in India, and finally, the Great Pyramids of Egypt. 

From London, Gervais and Merchant will watch Pilkington and his comedic idiocy abroad up until his return home to give his comments on the experience.  The trailer for the show just aired on the Sky media website, and the comedy is set to premier in September.  Watch the trailer below!
