Ricky Gervais to Host Golden Globes Drunk?

Sunday, January 17, 2010

Ricky GervaisRICKY Gervais has joked he will present the Golden Globe Awards drunk.

The comedian — who will be presenting the show on Sunday — doesn’t think he will be asked to host the ceremony ever again so has vowed to have fun because producers can’t do anything about his performance until afterward.

“I’m going to be drunk,” he said. “Everyone else is. They’re not going to invite me back, so I might as well have fun.

“They can’t censor me, it’s live. That’s the beauty of it. When they first offered me the job, I said, ‘I’m not going to rehearse. Can I say what I want?’ They said, ‘Yes.’ They haven’t seen the script, my ideas, so they can’t censor me. I suppose they could stop the show and replace me.”

Despite there being no planned jokes, the British star revealed he would be picking on Steve Carell, who has the same role in the US version of sit-com The Office that was originally played by Ricky in the UK show.

“Oh yeah, he’s definitely in for it. Obviously, that’s a staple,” said Gervais.

“Anyone who isn’t concentrating will get it, so they better listen, they better not talk. They can talk when everyone else is on, but they better not talk when I’m on, because then they get my attention and then they’re in trouble.”

    lol congrats to Ricky sticking it to the fat cats, stupid over bloated celebrities egos needed a good roasting.

    You can count on the brits to say it like it is, most of the lolywood celebs cant take a joke and have no sense of humor, as Jack Nicholson said once “This town needs an enema”

    Hollywood finally got one big mofo enema. rofl
