Meet Karl in first-look trailer for new Sky One comedy Sick of It

Enter the mind of Karl Pilkington in new comedy Sick of It, coming soon to Sky One and streaming service NOW TV.   

Sick of It is the first scripted series to be written by Karl Pilkington alongside Richard Yee, his long-time producer and director, and follows his character’s attempts to make sense of the modern world after the loss of his girlfriend.   

Now living with his elderly auntie, Karl's closest companion is Inner Self; the voice in his head who says what he really thinks without the risk of offending others.  As Karl attempts to move on from the break up and sort out his life, the voice in his head appears periodically to guide, criticise and dispense his unorthodox philosophy of life, with some interesting results!
