I haven't watched this yet, but ever since I saw Derek I began to suspect Pilkington is doing a long form bit and writes with Gervais.
Sexy Duck Cop
He's not. LIke Chris-Chan, everyone thinks Karl Pilkington is a character until they dig too deep and go mad from the revelqtions they unearth, like an an archaeologist in Lovecraft.
At first I didn't know the act, and it was Gervais' podcast, so I assume they hauled out the weird sound engineer as a stunt for a few episodes.
Later, I assumed that he was a persona for a comedian whom Gervais found who had no career record, so the persona was perfect deep cover.
Having seen most of his stuff, I think he's not a pure act, and I suspect that he's being a version of himself that he knows is funny. Whether he knows why or not is anyone's guess.
First three XFM series - real
Fourth series - starting to become self-aware
Everything else since - 50/50 split between himself as a person and as a media personality.

It doesn't help that, particularly on the podcasts, they go over old ground and stories that have already been told and re-told on XFM but with slight embellishments or presented in an overly histrionic way, whilst Ricky and Steve pretend it's the first time they are hearing it.
